STILLPOINT Cork Midsummer Festival June 2017

 

Dead Good Guides were invited by Jools Gilson, Professor of Creative Practice at University College Cork, to  devise STILLPOINT a 4 day workshop for 15 practitioners in Theatre, Music, Dance and Visual Arts - a creative opportunity to connect head, heart and hands in an intense, focussed and playful manner.

STILLPOINT offered distinctive space, free - for a short while - from the economic and political hysteria that surrounds us. The outcome was a showing of work-in-progress at the heritage Bonded Warehouses in the Port of Cork:  a choreographed choir underneath an installation on tall flagpoles of portraits of Cork based women created by photographer Carl Cordonnier.  A procession of wheelbarrows - each containing a miniature garden - led onto  personal storytelling and shadow theatre under the low stone roof, comic intrusions and a meditative salt mandala to end with. 

This international group of participants shared their creative practice in a joyful and trusting gathering. Huge thanks to Jools for hosting us and for her family's fantasic and generous hospitality to Dead Good Guides.
