The Imagination Museum Consortium - Made By Katie Green

The Imagination Museum: A discussion event for those interested in using dance and movement to interpret heritage   


10.30am - 4.00pm

 at The Collection Museum, Lincoln

Thanks to funding through the Curatorial Voice strand of the Surf the Wave programme and Arts Council England (through the Strategic Touring programme) with in kind support from The Collection Museum, this first consortium event will be FREE to attend as it will be the pilot for Made by Katie Green’s new series of discussion events exploring collaboration across dance and heritage.

Who is it for?

For those with an interest in using dance and movement to interpret heritage - you might already have some experience or just want to find out more about possibilities for collaboration in the future.

For people interested in participating in The Imagination Museum going forward - a hub, online and in person, for sharing events, opportunities, experiences and resources exploring ways of moving in museums.

The May 2019 event will be the first of a series of 3 discussion opportunities taking place in line with the Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400 project, therefore following the progression of that project from Lincolnshire, round to Hampshire and then to Plymouth in October 2020.

Pairs - How to be amazingly happy! By Victoria Firth followed by Fawn by Lizzie Klotz

How to be amazingly happy! By Victoria Firth followed by Fawn by Lizzie Klotz

Lawrence Batley Theatre’s Victoria Firth attended the Artist as Entrepreneur (AAE) in the North. During these events, she had discussions with artists about how Lawrence Batley Theatre might programme smaller scale and new work, so this Curatorial Voice series of events is about exploring an answer to this. Other programmers will also be invited to these evenings in order to share developing dance pieces with them. Two of the pieces that she is presenting were shown at the showcase event during the AAE in Newcastle and one is an AAE artists work. 

Pairs are specially curated evenings of discovery – each is a double bill of a theatre performance twinned with a short dance work.

Victoria Firth
How to be Amazingly Happy!

Victoria is on a quest to discover how you make a new life when you can’t have the one you imagined. In this big-hearted, big thinking show of storytelling and physical comedy our heroine’s mid-life search for joy, identity and belonging features public
displays of playfulness, private truths and sheer bloody mindedness. Join Victoria as she asks – is it possible to be happy without kids?

Lizzie Klotz
Fawn

Why do we seek to please? And how? Complimenting, flattering, being obedient, doing something really well whilst remaining humble.

Fawn considers the act of pleasing as an instinctive response to fear, threat and failure. As a solo work, fawn draws parallels between the relationship of pleasing another, pleasing an audience and pleasing oneself – as a person, as a dancer and as a woman.

Tickets: £8 - £14

Rob Ward - Gypsy Queen

Gypsy Queen is a critically acclaimed love story about two men who find each other in the most unlikely world; the world of professional boxing.

It explores LGBTQI visibility in sport, faith and sexuality and the notion of masculinity, played out with biting humour, heart and soul.

Anthony Lo-Guidice - L’uomo

L’uomo (translating in Italian as ’The Man’) is a short dance theatre duet centered around two men, entwining themselves through intimate gestures that interact and reciprocate the invitation to connect to another, examining what means to be touched, with at the heart of it, a play of hands. Hands testifying to trust, confidence and simplicity within the shelter of love.
