Take One Down2014
A dialogical community performance centred around beer brewing, song, seasonal produce and recycling. The project was developed collaboratively between myself, fellow artist Steve Maher and Könsikkäät all male voice choir.
Taking inspiration from the historical and cultural significance of brewing and singing, this socially engaged performance was developed over 6 weekly meetings exploring the human relationship with alcohol, both in its consumption and production and increasing awareness of the process of making to empower the individual to create their own cyclical system within their local community. During weekly meetings with myself and Steve we shared our knowledge of brewing and gained an insight into the choir. At the end of this collaboration we shared our efforts through the gifting of our produce and practice during a 40 minute choral performance at MUU Gallery, Cable Factory, Helsinki on the 18.10.14.
