The Incubator, Something Collective and Brief Encounters
Brief Encounters is a multidisciplinary performance experiment designed to fuse disciplines and push artistic boundaries. Brief Encounters was created by The Tomorrow Collective in 2005, and was produced by Katy Harris-McLeod and Mara Branscombe. Brief Encounter 17 is being co-produced with Something Collective member Laura Baron. For each installment the producers pick twelve inspiring artists/creators and match them in 6 unusual pairings. Two weeks prior to the show dates the artists are allowed meet with their partner and begin working. From this point on, the only criteria is that the piece be a new collaborative effort.
For this installment of Brief Encounters, Something Collective puppeteer, Maggie Winston is paired up with Contemporary Dancer, Julia Carr. These two inspired artist have been rehearsing at the Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre.
