A big thanks to 101 Outdoor Arts, Corn Exchange Newbury’s dedicated creation space for outdoor arts, who hosted a fantastic 11 day residency for Kundle Cru. The artists were allowed to experiment and test new ideas for their indoor piece Blame Game and to explore the possibility of an outdoor version Blame Game Unlimited.
The group (formerly Human Collective and Rough Connections) spent the time exchanging skills and teaching each other their own tricks. Alongside the artists we also invited a select group of collaborators including a number of Roundhouse Young Creatives, members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, a movement director (Aline David), a composer (Greg Szczerek), a dance educator and DOCH PhD (Marian Lindgren) and a circus performer and aerial rigger (Barnz Munn).
Video-maker Alice Underwood captured the essence of this unique, creative residency, please watch the footage here.
