GIUFA

Giufà Project, was a multidisciplinary residency - a collaborative project by Glyndebourne, Opera Circus, Battle Festival, Crisis Classroom and The Complete Freedom of Truth. July 2018

Young people from across the UK, Italy, Eritrea, Iraq and Syria were joined by a team of artists from across disciplines of theatre, dance, parkour and visual arts of to explore and recreate the journeys of Giufà, a folklore character who roamed the Mediterranean sharing stories and learning about the outside world.

I was invited to be lead visual artist to explore themes of migration, working with the young people across a wide range of processes including mark making, painting, installation, photography, video and shadow puppetry.

The process was open ended and undetermined, just the way I like it and it was great to work with other artists who could work so intuitively and responsively including Omar Shahryar – Composer, Howard Moody – Composer, Judith Coleman – Singer, Lucy Bradley – Director, Laura Fatini – Writer/Director Alister O’Loughlin – Parkour/Movement
