Universal Limited Theatre – Tour
This theatre collaboration is dedicated to looking at the world anew; to seeking wonder; to working with a site and a community to create the fantastic. Their pedicab play Tour is an intimate journey on an unusual contraption, a chance to change how an audience views their surroundings and themselves. Check out event details as they develop.
Aberthau: Flax = Food + Fibre . Phase 2: Living Fence Sculpture
Building on last year’s outdoor garden project. Aberthau: flax=food+fibre., this year’s lead artists Rebecca Graham, Brian Jones, and mentoring artist consultant Sharon Kallis will continue enlivening the new garden plot through art- and food-based crops grown together. They will focus on wheat, barley, and oats for traditional wheat weaving, and flax for linen production. The grain crops will be used for local art projects as well as food-growing education and local food security programs. In addition, working with community members they will build a traditional Welsh hedgerow: a multi-species pollarded living fence. This variable-height hedgerow will add to the street presence of the garden along the northwest side and contribute to its profile as a semi-permanent living sculpture. Free workshops open to all ages will be starting in the Spring of 2014 through to the Fall. For event and workshop information please go to aberthauflaxfibrefood.blogspot.ca
