Sharing Practice: Artistic Notions

Lunch, Chat & Walk with Gareth Clark, Director of
Louder is Not Always Clearer, Sunday 31 October, 12:00 – 14:00

For those who want to be inspired and make new connections

This session gives artists an opportunity for a creative chat. Director Gareth Clark wants to meet people who are inspiring or want to be inspired, people who love art, dance, theatre and don’t know what else to do.

“We want to meet people who are passionate about local and global issues, people that want to share autobiographical stories, or worthy political causes, we want to meet people that want to shine light in to dark corners. We want to meet people like you. This sharing of practice is a means of connecting with anyone who wants to talk and listen about what we all do. Aimed at developing new partnerships, clarifying ideas or simply meeting other people – this sharing is like inviting people around to your house to discuss ideas around the kitchen table – only without a table and a maybe a little bit of shared exercise. If you are interested and want to meet other people – then we want to meet you!” – Gareth Clark.

The sharing practice takes place before the performance of Louder Is Not Always Clearer. Tickets to this show can be booked separately.

What can you expect?

Enjoy a basic bagged lunch (included) while you chat with other artists before heading outside for an unguided, group stroll to continue the conversation. You are free to mingle with the artists and Gareth Clark, in his words, “like particles swirling around a Hadron collider in search of collisions that may create greater energy.”

The intention is to create a space for discussion, an informal sharing of ideas or notions as to the nature and use of live art, theatre and dance in society. This open forum offers the opportunity for this visiting company to meet people, who may have similar experiences or wish to explore ways of working across a wider landscape.

About Gareth Clark

Gareth Clark has been making theatre in Wales and beyond for nearly 20 years. He works together with co-artistic director Marega Palser in his company Mr and Mrs Clark. Making performance, live art and theatre, their work has a playful and interactive character inspired by happenings and live art events that bring art forms and people together.

The company produces original dance theatre productions and site-specific events. Dynamic in their presentation, they also create interactive performance pieces for festivals and events. In order to keep their work fresh and current, they continuously explore new themes, ideas and devisal processes. They teach and inspire through educational workshops and residencies.

Gareth likes to be inspired by local artists whenever he travels for work. He approached the STET Team with his Sharing Practice idea and asked whether we would like to set it up. We are happy to do so!
