Join me to Devoted & Disgruntled
D&D is an Open Space event that I first attended in 2008 during a leadership training programme – NT’s “Step Change”. Since then, I have been to all the annual D&D and most of the small D&D monthly events.
Improbable utilise Harrison Owen’s principles of open space to facilitate D&D. As an artist who doesn’t fit into ‘boxes’ of artistic discipline I find Improbable’s way of facilitating open space (both live and online) give me many new possibilities to develop and create works that are not necessary fitting into the “boxes”. Through D&D platform, I am less scared about asking “stupid” or “strange” questions that I do not know about. I have been collecting my questions as I go along in making and developing my projects, it has been a much fun way of making work even when thing isn’t working out the way I expect. I like making works more than just thinking, dreaming and researching how best to make great works.
In 2011, “I am your anti-matter” was created; “Cloud Clock Love” successfully received funding support from the National Lottery through Arts Council England; an online studio was created; a one-year durational laboratory was developed; a Collaborative Theatre Companies online platform was created after I accidentally sat on a chair with a small group of people… The list I could write would be practically endless… it would be like counting “the types of food that I have been eaten” since 2008.
Via Improbable’s open invitation D&D 7 annual event, I invite people to respond to my own responses to Improbable’s original invitation. This invitation will be shared on my tumblr stream.
