The Little Book of Answers

Yesterday at Tate Modern, visual artist Laura Malacart led a fascinating and engaging one day event in the Turbine Hall. The Little Book of Answers was based on a book she has compiled, there was a choice of short activities to participate in


Kinetic memorisation, a 15 minute movement-based workshop


British pronunciation, a 15 minute voice workshop


Laura Malacart’s practice focuses on language voice and collaborative modes to interrogate socio-political categories that contribute to the production of identity.

Greenwich World Cultural Festival, Eltham Palace

Greenwich World Cultural Festival is a free dynamic one day festival that takes place at Eltham Palace and Gardens with a diverse celebration of dance, music, theatre, art and circus. It  is a Greenwich Dance initiative, where I am Resident Artist. For the third year I was invited to run the family Art activities in the sunken moat. Thank you to the wonderful Art team: Max McKay-Jones, Georgie Harrison, Gaby McKay-Jones, and Becky. Max and Georgie worked with the children during the afternoon creating a cardboard tower inspired by the entrance to Eltham Palace
