R&D work has begun on our Ambition for Excellence award winning project Bridge with the formation of the creative team, Orit Azaz, Director; Dan Potra, Designer; Corey Baker, Chorographer; Claire Maddocks, Producer and Lou Lomas Assistant Creative Producer. The team are working in collaboration with Arup and partners in Coventry and Grantham to create the idea for the performance structure, create performance narrative inspired by local story collection on the theme of bridge building divides and reconciliation. Bridge development will be showcased during The Festival of Imagineers 2018 in Coventry Cathedral and performed in Coventry and Grantham in 2019 and Worcester in 2020. For further information about Bridge please visit the new Festival of Imagineers website www.festivalofimagineers.co.uk
We have been developing The Festival of Imagineers programme 17th-22nd September and will be announcing the headline events in the middle of June. We have formed an exciting new partnership with Coventry University and the festival is part of their 175th anniversary of teaching in the City celebrations. The programme has a strong local, national and international programme. We have also recently begun our collaboration with Artichoke on the development of the festival for 2021 and City of Culture.
The IMAGINEERIUM INITIATIVE – Marvellous Mechanical Machines Project has engaged a further 5 Coventry Primary Schools this year working with artists and engineers. Designs and prototypes and performances are being prepared for The Pitch which is taking place on June 21st at The University of Warwick. This is where projects will be selected to be developed as art works for the new cycle trail in The Charterhouse Heritage site as a 2021 legacy.| ← Previous | | | Next → |
