THE PROCESSION - A SURREAL SYMPHONY
"The Surreal Symphony explores our innate need for narratives to help us understand the world and our place within it" - Steve
Recently, we struck wondrous mystery into the hearts of onlookers on our beautiful coastal esplanade in Scarborough, UK. A strange procession of our local community came together donning masks, robes and carrying Mawlog as the creature churned, plucked and struck our mechanical music machine. The momentous event raised many eyebrows and those fortunate enough to be there won't soon forget the awesome experience.
FLYING OUR FLAGS
"Beauty n' Grace from those growing "unfathomable complexities" we find ourselves immersed in now-a-daze."
This enchanting spectacle of visual art, music and performance would not have been possible without our creative local community coming together building, hoisting, marching and documenting with us. Combining their unique skill sets to create a whole experience was an amazing thing to facilitate and be amongst. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible and to the hundreds of people who came to our exhibition at the OPO to explore the masks, music machine and lore of The Surreal Symphony. The positive response was overwhelming.

DEFINING OUR NARRATIVE
"Yes, I get this – moved by the idea of a defining narrative to our lives. A reassuring mixture of our past, present and future. Love the mixed media and the use of the space."
Luckily for those that didn't witness the initial procession, we held an exhibition that was experienced by 376 people at our local Old Parcel's Office Artspace. Many more also had a hand in building the amazing masks and costumes through community workshops. It's safe to say that no one had ever seen anything quite like this before and the feedback inspires us to move forward with exciting future art projects.
MAKING A MUSIC MACHINE
"What a thing. I loved the music machine. It was certainly a conversation starter."
