Award winning theatre company Slung Low has created five new performance pieces for five North Yorkshire Festivals. A series of new pieces based on the novel The Ground Remembers by Matthew David Scott. Set in unusual and unique locations, the shows re-examine how audiences go and see a piece of theatre.
The creative solution explores the notion of ‘real magic’ and plays on the common water theme through refraction. Working with Mezz Davies, a combination of site specific location photography and studio shots were captured. Layers of sediment are suggested through the use of stacked typography, line work and photography. Fenner Paper helped to make effective use of budgets and stocks. Evolution Print produced the promotional print utilising die and laser cuts.
Converging Paths plays in 4 more festivals this year. www.convergingpaths.co.uk
Leeds Inspired is part of the Leeds City Council Olympics Cultural Programme but will run beyond the 2012 games. The web element is designed to bring arts, cultural, digital, community and social events together in one place for the first time in a listing site curated by multiple event organisers. The idea is to make this information available as a plug-in for other sites promoting Leeds and to incorporate independent comment and news.
Leeds Inspired allows users to search and promote events and access funding for cultural activities in 2012 and beyond. An accessible and inclusive solution needed to communicate the Leeds Inspired values and vision to an extremely diverse audience without alienating or risking a snubbing from the cultural elite. Kilo 75 defined the user experience and built the site.
The Leeds Inspired site is has launched for beta testing. www.leedsinspired.co.uk
Working in collaboration with We Love Technology, Leeds Galleries and Museums and young people from the region, Mobile Museum used creative writing and mobile phones to help young people make new connections with the objects on display across the different galleries and museums throughout the city. Newspapers with content part created by the youth groups, along with maps, napkins and a labelling a system were created to engage children, young people and families and encouraged them to read, write and share poems through the use of mobile phones.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary, an identity and print promotion was commissioned by the Northern School of Contemporary Dance. Having worked closely with NSCD since 2006, it was a great opportunity to re-visit some of the promotional material created over the past years. Working primarily with NSCD’s photography archive and recent brand photography by Chris Nash, an identity was developed and applied to invites, posters, banners, programmes and posters.
A Few Words from the Editor
I have three fairly large updates to push out today, so the ‘few words from the editor’ section of each feature will be fairly sparse — It’s not like anyone reads this section anyway ;).
Thank you once again to Lee for making this feature possible and for the kind words and support :)
