Our Brief Encounters Toowoomba performance, August 2013
So, it has obviously been awhile since this film was created, but since all of the travelling, I have not been able to post it until now. I have written about this collaboration process, creation and performance quite a bit in the past, and I have linked those details below. I have also created a new page for films! Yay.
‘Does Art Matter?’ an interview with Toowoomba artists that I was quoted in.
A review of the Brief Encounters performance by Amber Gywnne.
A gallery of the performance images.
I did my own makeup for the performance (including false eyelashes) and wrote about it.
I would like to thank Matthew Dalamaras and Rory Adams for their preservation of this performance with the medium of film. Without them, it would be nothing but talk of a thing I created once with someone. I would also like to thank Jennifer Murray for bringing the whole Brief Encounters Toowoomba crew together to create something pretty interesting in just one fortnight.
A few thoughts on the Brief Encounters film;
I am (obviously) not the most comfortable person in front of the camera, which is kind of annoying, since during the performance I have memories of not feeling awkward at all. More work on this is needed.
I never realised what that crocheted dress looked like from the back, and it is pretty flattering!
I should get back into designing and creating wearable art, larger things than I have been doing of late (mostly gloves, scarves and hats).
I really miss Toowoomba, and treasure the memories I have of living there. They are very precious to me.
