ENCOUNTERS: A Little Patch Of Ground
This is an interesting art project - just missed it at The Point in Doncaster - it finished 18th July... for more information click here...
Since April, Encounters have been working with fifteen participants aged 12 - 60 from across Doncaster to grow a unique vegetable garden and create a multi-media performance. The group has met every week to share time, food, reflections, ideas, fears and hopes. The Little Patch of Ground performance will reflect their personal stories and relationships with the wider natural world through a cross-fertilisation of soil, images, edible produce, objects, words and songs.
A Little Patch Of Ground is free and suitable for all ages. Please reserve a seat from The Point on 01302 341662.
A Little Patch of Ground has been devised by Encounters’ Creative Director Ruth Ben-Tovim and Project Associate Anne-Marie Culhane. It was first seen in Liverpool at the Bluecoat in 2009. Each year the project will take root in a different part of the country, heading for London in 2011.
A Little Patch of Ground is funded by Arts Council England, Yorkshire and produced in association with darts (Doncaster Community Arts).
