Clay Walks community performance @ White Gold Festival,
St Austell, Sept '18
Friday 28th 4.30- 6pm Rehearsal for extracts
Saturday 29th 10.30- 12pm Whole cast rehearsal
Saturday 29th 12- 1.45pm Installation performances
Join the Clay Walks cast to perform extracts of Clay Walks in the streets of St Austell for their annual festival. We are looking for performers to take part in the BalMaiden's movement scene and the slower duo /solo Observance scene. Both are tight improvisation frameworks and have some vocabulary to learn on the Friday night or Saturday morning.
The extracts are from the successful performance of Clay Walks at Wheal Martyn in June 2018 and Cornwall Council have since commissioned SpinDrift to perform at White Gold in September and the Arts Festival in November. You are welcome to also join us for the Clay Walks performance at Wheal Martyn on November 24th.

Delicately Placed: Towards the Horizon Installation @Atlantic Festival
Plymouth, Oct '18
Saturday 6th 10.30- 12 Delicately Placed Workshop
Saturday 6th 1- 3pm Performance of installation
Saturday 13th 10.30- 12 Delicately Placed Workshop
Saturday 13th 1- 3pm Performance of installation
Join SpinDrift and the many youth groups, community groups and dance students as we perform a unique human sculpture, slowly moving through the city centre towards the Hoe and Horizon. Commissioned by Plymouth Culture for the Atlantic Project, we are bringing art to the public by creating visual performance on the city streets.
The art work from the art weekender and Armada archives will be interwoven in our shapes, body paint and costume design to create a 3d, striking set of sculptures: hanging, squeezing into corners, balancing on walls, standing on seats, wrapping around contours and finding upside down moments in the urban landscape. We will traverse from the Armada Centre to Royal Parade., improvising the schuptures and holding each one for one minute. The Saturday morning rehearsal will provide you with enough skill and vocabulary to join in.
Contact suziespindrift if you want to join in!
