The Jangly Dusk was a project curated by Peter Mutschler of PS² Gallery in Belfast, N.Ireland; involving an off-site performance and film.
Initially I used the PS² gallery as a development space.
Over the course of three weeks, I made a series of sculptures, costumes and a sound piece.
This development work culminated in the staging of the off-site live art work, The Jangly Dusk.
Beginning with the audience gathering at the entrance to a river and towpath, a guided walk began as daylight faded, along the towpath, through a woodland, to the performance site.
Envisaged as a kind of open film set, The Jangly Dusk performance re-imagined the river and towpath as a fictional space; set for scenes of post-utopian romanticism and poetic horror.
The performance was filmed and edited by Michael McNulty, and screened as part of a closing event in the PS² Gallery space.
