I recently picked up I like the way you wear your hair for back-to-back development residencies at BAC and The Basement. It’s an autobiographical piece about being a teenager and the safety of your bedroom. It was an absolute gift to have two weeks set aside to be an artist; to write, pace, stick post-its on the wall, drink coffee and talk to the walls. The piece grew in every way due to the attention and the feedback of the generous audiences who came to see the scratch showings. Thanks, BAC and The Basement.
I’m very pleased to say I’ll be performing the piece at The Basement in Brighton as part of a double bill (along with Superbard) Wednesday 18th April. Look here for tickets and the full Spring 2012 Programme. And watch out for some more exciting announcements very soon regarding upcoming outings for the piece in London and beyond.
While alone in the studio (OBVIOUSLY between serious artistic thinking about THE WORK), I played around with some images from the piece with my camera and a mirror. Look:
More images here if you’re into that kind of thing.
