Being in Between
Bristol Zoological Gardens 14-16 October 2005
A small-scale body based interactive durational performance at Bristol Zoo examining creative, ecological and ethical issues. The project will enhance public perception of the dynamics and interdependence between primates, plants and humans stimulating an appreciation of the implications of a bio-centric perception of environment.
The performers were trained in a range of styles, including outdoor theatre, movement and dance, music and interacting with the audience. We used these styles to create 'durational performances' that ran for most of the zoo opening hours. Some parts of the performances took place at specific times and were quite 'high profile', some parts happened over the course of the day and were almost invisible.
