The Bolster Playground Performance and Installation making workshop (Lolly Adams). Saturday 11-4pm This is a performance and installation making workshop based on themes of support and collaboration. The workshop will include games that assist us in creating an installation these include; a scavenger hunt for materials, movement and body games along with installation making as a visual balancing act. The three components that we will be thinking about are supports, connections and floppy objects and how we can recreate them physically and with materials, discussing positive networks on a wider level. Please bring food to share.

Saturday 6-9pm: The Bolster Playground exhibition and sharing. An open invitation for anyone to come and see the installation and potentially performances / films will be shared from the days workshop.
