Alternative Village Fete at Watch this Space, National Theatre
The Alternative Village Fete 2012 at Watch this Space, National Theatre Square, SE1
Sunday 26th & 27th August 2012
home live art’s Alternative Village Fete presented its celebrated subversive twist on British fete traditions. However, the Ark-ive, created by Wildworks, had landed, the flood receded and with a dawn of a new world what would a village fete look like? Adding to the existing anarchic mix, the Alternative Village Fete artists and programme responded to the themes of extinction, the wild, animals and a sprinkling of gentle post apocalyptic chaos….
Audiences joined us for Tom Marshman’s anarchic Crown Jewels game (think Its a Knockout crossed with school sports day mayhem), Richard Dedomenici’s challenge to beat the World Record for x14 swivels on an office chair in The Swivelympics and Ella Good & Nicki Kent’s Total Eclipse of the Head, with haircuts inspired by your favourite music. With personalised illustrations from Deborah Andrews’ Pentapaper, (g)love puppets with Boogaloo Stu and thigh slapping music and dance with Cut a Shine and The Ceilidh Liberation Front, home live art provided fun, entertainment and madcap projects galore outside the National Theatre!
Artists include: Tom Marshman, Catherine Hoffman, Ella Good & Nicki Kent , Richard Dedomenici, Deborah Andrews, Feral Theatre, Cut a Shine, Segue Sisters, Icecreamvanman, The Ceilidh Liberation Front, Strangeworks, Boogaloo Stu, Paul L Martin.
