Rehearsal Mayflower Steps 13th June

Boats in  bus shelter

I have made new sets of prototypes for the large boats, white and mirrored.

Glorious day! Took the train  down for morning rehearsal. Packed with people – lucky that the big boats were flat pack and I could put them on the luggage rack, and that a bus was waiting at Plymouth railway station to ferry me down to the Barbican otherwise there were some potential Charlie Chaplin moments for sure.

Laringytis 15th May

Struck down with laryingitis .

Made flag boat and pilgrim boats for my own amusement, using the basic boat template as a starting boat and then just seeing where my imagination took me

.Pilgrims blue

This project is prompting me to develop my own work in ways I never could have imagined which is great.

House Boat 1

Thinking about how I can develop the basic concept and where I can launch these new vessels is giving me plenty of food for thought.

Sketching of different configurations 3 May

I have started to sketch out various configurations for boats by the  series of blue doors along from the Mayflower steps.

Boats Asterix shapesMy current thoughts are that the boats shouldn’t be in the water at the beginning of the performance (after what happened at Maidencombe).  They would also detract attention away from the dancers.

 Rather than tethering the boats in the water and running the risk of some capsizing and sinking before the end of the performance, the boats could be configured (beforehand and/or by dancers?) into patterns or groups that might anticipate and be suggestive of what is to come.Boats battle formation

At the end of the performance some of the boats could be released and float off into the sunset (weather permitting!!) to create a strong final image . We would need to fish out the remains  of the boats once the performance was over.
