The Book of Witchin'
Saturday 27th November sees the culmination of my latest collaboration with inter-disciplinary artist Izzy Brittain.
We've created a form called 10:1.
10 x 1 minute films or performances inspired by artists and exhibitions. In 2015 we did 'The Book of Dave' a live performance of poetry, dance and live art inspired by artist Dave Pearson. Watch here.
2021 brings 'The Book of Witchin' a digital performance of poetry and dance inspired by 'These Lancashire Women Are Witches In Politics' from artists Anna FC Smith and Helen Mather. More info here.
