You may or may not have noticed The Peterborough Stone; a tiny Neolithic standing stone sitting on the lawn outside the museum. Arianne and Chloe’s project aims to shift people’s relationship with this small but ancient monument by creating two performative ‘living’ stone circles and a somewhat mind-bending film. Join us on the 9th March to hear about the background to the project, findings from Arianne and Chloe’s research into standing stones thus far, as well as details of how you can get involved.
Perhaps you would like to create art work or help make relics in one of the workshops. Perhaps you’ve always dreamed of being a ‘performative human stone’ and would like to take part in the performance at the Green Backyard’s May Day celebrations on Saturday 6th May. Or, perhaps you would just like to watch it all from a safe distance. Whichever, if you’re intrigued by the project and / or Arianne and Chloe’s work then do come along and join us.
