When Ink Is Not Enough
Wed. 2 November 2016, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm AEST
Part of their 'One Thousand Promises' tour, When Ink is not enough is a workshop presented by Texas based Madison Mae Parker and London Based Francesca Willow exploring collaboration of the arts.
The Workshop: We all encounter those poems or pieces that don’t seem to be enough in and of themselves. So what do we do then? Madison and Francesca explore the idea of combining the arts, particularly spoken word and dance, to influence, expand, and explore new corridors of creativity.
The Project: One Thousand Promises is a duo art project between Francesca Willow and Madison Mae Parker. Francesca, a choreographer and performer, uses Madison’s poetry as a starting point for making movement.The duo aims to create a full, experiential atmosphere for the audience, not allowing them to be passive observers, but active participants in the conversation unfolding before them. Their work touches on the darkness that lies within us all, particularly focusing on eating disorders and mental illness, and the strength to overcome through the power that exists within womanhood.
Workshop: 6.00pm - 8.00pm
Performance: 8.15 - 9.00pm
All workshop participants recieve free entry into the performance. Limited numbers.
