Thanks to all who came to our seventh birthday event on 30th April, which was, in the words, of Judy Gordon, a night of “meltdowns, anthropomorphic puzzles, and other surprises”. Thanks to Judy and Write Out Loud for this review, which you can read in full here.
Lots of examples of Mark’s work are available on his website such as:
IS/THIS/HIS. a collaboration between Alastair MacLennan, Bean and Mark Greenwood. Three figures slowly unravel white wool for three hours. Inscription, testing of material, knots and the generation of trace configures an immediate and sustained public utterance.
Mark will perform at The Other Room 7th birthday, 30th April.
For more details of the night see the poster in the middle column.
Thanks to all who came to last night’s performances by Joanne Ashcroft, Lila Matsumoto and EJ McAdams. Our next event is our 7th birthday and will be on Thursday 30th April, with Mark Greenwood, Sophie Herxheimer, Steve Boyland, JR Carpenter, Jerome Fletcher & Lou Rowan.
