Project Pygmalion

An explosive collaboration between the visual and performance arts exploring the myth of Pygmalion from Ovid. Ideas behind the work included: performance of gender, the notion of “true love”, and our personal influence as artist and subject. PROJECT PYGMALION was rapidly created in one month, each response bringing a fragment to create the whole. The Collective created a daytime gallery in the Hub at Ugly Duck, mixing media with improvised live performance. In the evening theatrical responses to the myth were performed to great responses. The bill featured a premiere of new work by spoken word artist Suzy Gill, performed by special guest theatre company Siberian Lights.
