New Project Supported by Barbican & Arts Council
Pleased to announce that Eelyn Lee's new moving image project, 'Monster' has been selected by the Barbican to be developed during a 5-day lab in their Pit Theatre next month. Subsequently, the Arts Council England have offered their support in funding the project through their Grants for the Arts strand.
‘Monster’ is a five-day exploratory lab, exploring new ways of making moving image content through processes of devising and improvisation.
By interrogating notions of ‘demons and fear’ Eelyn will collaborate with a group of artists and performers to create a monster story set in a fictional place along the Thames estuary.
The results will be shared with an audience in the Barbican Cinema, hosted by film curator, Gareth Evans and be further developed next year in a real estuary setting where Eelyn aims to produce a long-form moving image work.
The lab will take place 1st - 5th December, 2014
Monster will be developed through the Open LAB scheme at Barbican/Guildhall
