Grand Grotesque Parade

In the last month, I have spend a few days working with The Girls helping to make bits and pieces for the Grand Grotesque Parade, happening in Bournemouth 24th September!

A live masked parade and film. A unique reinterpretation of Edwardian Bournemouth’s long forgotten ‘Grand Grotesque Carnival’, directed by and featuring the artists duo, The Girls. Watch the parade as it leaves Bournemouth Pier and winds its way through the Lower Gardens, stopping in the Sqaure for a choral performance, before returning to the Pier. A new commissioned film will be screened in the band stand in the Lower Gardens.

Inspiration - Parade with many elaborate and peculiar masks with giant decorative floats that took place in Bournemouth 1910.

It is free to take part, with dressing up encouraged. I myself will there on the night and be in full costume and there will also be a choir as part of the Parade and can guarantee a parade like you have never seen before on this very unique evening! 
Everyone is welcome!

Pictures of making stuff will be up nearer the time and hopefully lots from the evening too. The parade is part of the Bournemouth Arts Festival with lots going on in the area into October.
