Ben Judd
Vast as the Dark of Night and as the Light of Day

Saturday 14th June
Greta Thames Sailing Barge

Judd’s works explore how ritualised activities can be realised by actors, employing the choreographic and the rhythmic as a method of constructing and examining communities. This new work is informed by his research into collectivity and ritual in Whitstable, such as the Blessing of the Waters, an annual thanksgiving traditionally associated with St James, patron saint of oystermen. Taking place on an historic Thames sailing barge, this performance will attempt to form a temporary, and fragile, community out of the twelve passengers on board. Booking is essential and places are limited; please see website for details.
