Seven Arty Party performers spent a day working alongside performance artist Alan Mclean to devise and create work for M21, an exciting live art event, taking place in Much Wenlock in May. The work created will form part of a performance art piece by Alan Mclean entitled ‘Searching for Tony Mustoe’
Ricky, Graham, Nathan, Mervyn, Sean, Ray and Richard under the guidance of Alan Mclean explored all the ways a simple piece of paper can be folded, flown, worn, ripped and transformed to become part of a live art performance.
We then explored devising performance pieces in small groups making works to share involving our paper creations and inhabiting different spaces, including inside a tent, behind some curtains and along the entire length of the hall.
Performer Nathan Campbell commented ‘ It was great trying out lots of creative ideas , so much came from just a simple piece of paper’ he continued ‘ It was good to be back with Arty Party and be part of a team, putting up a tent together, performing and sharing banter and laughter’ .
The group will be devising and rehearsing for a further three days in May before performing on Sunday 6th of May.
