We 3: associate artists for The Girls' Grand Grotesque Parade 2011... and we'd like you to join us!
Earlier this year as We 3, myself and performing artists Antonia Beck and Felicity Crabb were the odd and prodding guests of performance artists The Girls (http://www.thegirls.co.uk/) in their residency for Millais Off-Site Projects: 'The Paper Eaters Do Bargate'. We 3 experimented with notions of intimacy, with the public as our playmates, in 'We 3: Intimacy'. We donned tutus and different faces and with Post-it notes and knitting needles in hand we asked people to reveal what was in their heads and hearts - the results of which you can read about in earlier posts.
We're now very excited to be working with The Girls again, this time as associate artists on their latest project for Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival 2011: The Grand Grotesque Parade, a cross-artform celebration of all things weird, wonderful and wonky all with an Edwardian edge.

Over the coming two months, we'll be moving from the rehearsal space to the beach and streets. We'll mix our art together, turn ideas into the manifest, move from paper and pen and pictures to bodies and costumes, song and sound as we parade through to film and final performance. Looking forward to sharing it with you.
