On Saturday I started a new commission with ZENDEH theatre company creating an installation and youth led workshop for Shabe Yalda – the Iranian Winter Solstice on 20th December 2014.
I’ve worked with ZENDEH before making an installation that formed the setting of FLOCK in 2012. I also worked on a shabe yalda event for that production too, which was a great way to do an early staging of the installation.
This time, ZENDEH have been working with a group of young commissioners to choose artists to respond to their new play CINEMA. On Saturday I had a first read through of the draft script and along with the other two commissioned artists, we visited The Lit and Phil library where the event will take place.
I’m making a series of shadow boxes playing with both abstract and narrative shapes with light and movement and I’m currently thinking through how an audience might interact with the pieces.
