Reframing the Past >> Emerging Futures

Aug 26-28 2022 Nearly time to view the video Megan Arnold and I have made as part of this
international collaborative project with Elysium Gallery and IICSI 
Click on http://improvfest.ca/ to watch live.

After talking about the paths laid out for us, whether on the land or in our stars, we decided to follow
will o’ the wisps. Through a process of call and response we have exchanged video, performance, sound
and texts which have taken us both off the beaten track and into unfamiliar terrain. Guided by instinct,
embracing risk and open to accident we found ourselves playing in the margins between freedom and
restraint, gravity and absurdity. The Future of the Universe / Mae Dyfodol y Bydysawd is a karaoke-
inspired video that subverts ideas of pre-determined futures on a personal, global, and galactic level.

Elysium gallery in partnership with IICSI commissioned 6 artists from Canada and Wales to
work together, developing cross-Atlantic strategies to create critical and experimental new work online.
Through A series of monthly online artist discussions, we want to create an innovative platform for
creative collaborations that will evolve into developing ideas that will form part of Elysium’s contribution
to IICSI’s IF Improvisation Festivals in 2022. With Jonathan Powell, Stephen Donnelly and Daniel Trivedy.
This project is supported by Wales Arts International

Other selected artists are: Tricia Enns, Jessica Lerner, Andrew Maize & Euros Rowlands.
