Gascoyne in May

26 Aug , 2016  

In May I literally ran off with the circus for a month! I toured the Gascoyne Region of WA as part of the Gascoyne in May Festival which was a series of regional events in both city and remote areas. I travelled with a gorgeous troupe of musicians, puppeteers, animatronic artists and circus performers! I was the sculptor and brought a travelling exhibition with me which was set up next to the sea at each regional event. We were focused very much on local community and I had fun teaching regional groups fire sculpture. We spent many magical nights working on sculpture together. At each event what they had made was burnt as the musicians played and the circus flew over our heads and spun fire. It is hard to explain just how moving it was. I was given a fire cannon to play with too and it was bliss! nice!

You can find out some more info about this on the ABC Radio site or see more pics in the Sculpture Gallery.
