…the gentle fall of snow…a man falling from the World Trade Centre…the fall of the Berlin Wall…falling in love…falling over…fallen from grace…
A work-in-progress showing by performance makers Kate Ashman and Sylvia Rimat, who set out to explore the intertwined connections of falling on a literal, political, personal and very real physical level. (Re)creating and engaging with environments of falls, they search to understand and learn from the moment of transition, the sense of timelessness and the loss of control.
The work-in-progress performance was presented at Mayfest 2010 in Bristol and supported by Arnolfini Bristol. The project has been invited for a residency from Nov 2010 - March 2011, with Beaford Arts, England's longest-established rural arts organisation, based in Devon. The performance will be developed further over the course of 2011.
