Below are just a few audience responses to our storytelling and exhibition event "In Skriker's Footsteps" in Preston last weekend:
• I really enjoyed seeing different media that what used in the storytelling piece as part of the exhibition. Very inspiring.
• Original, atmospheric and intriguing. Great to see different types of art used and brought together so one can hear the story, see pictures, try out shadow shows and appreciate the art. Thank you.
• An original performance enhanced by the media. Catch you in April - thank you.
• Stories about real places (places I know!) Fascinating. Thanks.
• Brilliantly evocative. I loved the combination of storytelling and shifting backdrop animation! Thanks.
• Awesome stories! I really enjoyed it, especially with the background projection! Thanks.
My own response:
Great to be part of a festival - as opposed to just an exhibition - with a varied audience willing to engage in something new, in a very central "pop-up" space.
The combination of the storytelling performance and the exhibition with interactive works worked well. People - having learned the stories - engaged more deeply and meaningfully with the work.
All this made possible thanks to the awesome Jacqueline and Adam!
