Metal and Change Maker Associate Producer Kate Marsh are very happy to announce the selected Metal LAB participants. Following a national call-out and an unprecedented response of 177 applications, the selected group of 25 artists will attend intensive week long development sessions exploring through movement ‘the in-between’ that sits beyond the ’normative’ and ‘othered’ body. Taking place at one of the three Metal sites in Peterborough, Southend and Liverpool during 2017, the artists will then have the opportunity of coming into residence to work on new R&D commissions for showcasing in 2018.
The selected artists are:
PETERBOROUGH: Hamish MacPherson ; James Rose; Gemma Nash; Gareth Cutter; Kimberly Harvey; Tiiu Mortley; Robert Hesp; Tim Casson
SOUTHEND: Welly O’Brien; Matt Lewis; Samuel Kennedy; Catherine Hoffman; Jo Bannon ; Robbie Synge; Julie Cleves
LIVERPOOL: Sarah Blanc; Kitty Fedorec; Tania Erhart ; Ella Mesma; Ashleigh Owen; Mark Smith; Victoria Malin ; Fernanda Munoz – Newsome; Rowan James; Jemima Hoadly
The confirmed guest mentors are: Scottee, Luke Pell, Noemi Lakmaier, Caroline Bowditch, Claire Cunningham, Dinis Machado
The LABs and commissions are funded by Arts Council England through the Change Makers programme.
