Creative Connector & Project Manager - Libraries Unlimited
May 2017 - March 2018
My role was to lead an outreach programme of events focussing on North Devon & Torridge that seeks to reach and engage people who don't currently use the library service and to interrogate the kinds of services the library is offering.
Alongside this, I was contracted to initiate new ways of working that embed creative approaches within the staff team helping them to build relationships with cultural organisations and independent artists, to offer training and guidance in order to raise the artistic quality of events and programming throughout the library service.
Unlimited Potential was supported through the Arts Council England Libraries Open to Everyone Innovation Fund.
Producer - The North! The North!
June 2017 - September 2017
Created and performed by Chris Harrisson.
The North! The North!
The North! The North! is a surreal noir with physical storytelling and projected animation. It's a story about trauma and myth-making, with sweat and violence and lots of dancing. It begins with a phone call, outside a club at 3am. A young man seeks vengeance and his quest will lead him back to where it all began: the dark and bloody heart of the North.
Producer - The Nature of Why [Paraorchestra]
A Co Production between The British Paraorchestra and MAYK, commissioned by Unlimited.
The Nature of Why, commissioned by Unlimited, merges dance and live music into an epic performance that brims with emotion and physical beauty. The show features a cinematic live-score from Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, an ensemble of musicians from the British Paraorchestra and four extraordinary dancers.
