'INSIGHT' 2009 - a work in progress
Kathleen Downie, stilt artist, joins David Stevens and Gregory Champion for 'INSIGHT' , a new performance piece by Judith Jarvis.
David, Greg and Kathleen discover the 'The Bates Method', aka 'Better Eyesight Without Glasses' and, after playing with this for a while, enter into a fascinating world of contact-dance and acro-stilt performance. Against a musical setting of operatic Vocalise the result is a tumbling mass of humanity combined with gentle humour.
This piece was first shown at 'Summer Arts Encounter' at Saint Stephens, Bristol . We were then asked to perform INSIGHT at 'Practice - Made in Somerset', a national conference, sponsored by the Arts Council
