My Greenbelt Five: Alice Wroe
Here’s the Greenbelt five of Alice Wroe, Greenbelt writer and art history student…
Anthony Green’s gigantic work Resurrection is rarely showed publicly. I am excited to delve into his distorted and slightly trippy domestic, as he and his family make the journey from Gospel Oak Station to Paradise. His talk ‘I’m going to Paradise- are you coming with me?’ should be equally as special.
2. Thomas Lynch
Thomas Lynch is both a prizewinning poet and undertaker; his writing is thoughtful and beautiful, as are his opinions on the importance of a good funeral. I am eager to see how Lynch connects his professions, how they inform each other, and if, as I imagine, he intertwines them effortlessly into one.
3. The Paper Cinema (above)
The Paper Cinema seems quirkily, magically brilliant, with the capacity to turn an audience into wide-eyed beauty seekers. I am looking forward to witnessing the jaunty music, makeshift puppets, smoke and mirrors, which I’m told should provide perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in magic.
I like Pecha Kucha, people speak with purpose and power when using this method, it’s a great idea to use the structure for The Sound of Conversation, the artists designers and creatives should, with any luck, provide focussed interesting and spirited presentations.
Roddy Woomble is wonderful, Idlewild are excellent, their headline slot was an absolute highlight of last year’s festival. I’m so happy Roddy is coming back, and I’m sure his solo stuff will reveal to us another dimension of his brilliance.
