The Weevil Inside The Mind of Van Gogh
in association with Dead Rat Theatre Company
Written and Directed by Vincent Paxton
The Dutch painter's final years are portrayed through his thoughts which take on human form, guiding the good ship SS Van Gogh through the troubled waters of his mind while his guardian angel is a weevil boring into his brain as he sinks into syphilis-induced madness.
in association with Seed Studios
Led and inspired by Isaac Sigley and Christina Artemis
A cultural project developed with young people, ages 11-16 yrs old, over 12 week workshops at Avonbourne Girls School and Portchester Boys School. There were 2 theatre performances using film installation, sound, dance and storytelling. They wrote the script, developing their own creation myth with the help of the facilitators. The story focused on two tribes whose warring history centred on their inability to share dwindling resources of food and water.
