Joan of Arc 603 17 August 2015 Artist Yvonne Buskie collaborates with musician Luke Sutherland and choreographer/dancer Christine Devaney for this one off cross-art form, live work. It is 603 years since the birth of Joan of Arc, and her astonishingly dramatic history continues to stimulate our modern era.
For the durational performance, the artists invite you into this hybrid space, which connects theatre to gallery, to witness a playful exploration of ritual and meditation. A large floor drawing and paper objects will inhabit the space, and will inevitably become torn and fragmented during the performance. The repetitive tasks of making and mending transform into a devotional meditation. You are also invited to make your own offering to the process by embellishing the paper objects with gold leaf.
