Bristol Museum & Art Gallery commissioned a performance to run alongside their Jeremy Deller: English Magic exhibition. They asked me to create a 1-hour experience responding to the themes of the show. I was taken by Deller’s use of both Neolithic arrowheads and native British animals in his show.
My performance involved the whole audience using pendulums made from Neolithic arrowheads and a mindreading robot bird to create moments of mystery. Audience members used a traditional form of English hypnotic ventriloquism to turn their own arm into an animal and to converse with it to create their own original English myths.
