The office is full of words. Not the awkwardly squeezed arts meets social care kind of text of funding bids and evaluation reports, these are words that take you by surprise scattered on the dining table with the tulips and biscuit crumbs: ‘salt fishcakes’, ‘distressed daughter’, ‘embarrassment’.
It’s the debris of yesterday afternoon’s workshop with spoken word artist Simon Mole and Entelechy’s older emerging artists. Simon has been resident in the Albany for the last month preparing for site specific performance: Indiana Jones and the Extra Chair. For two afternoons Simon has been working with members of the elders company. They have been working together prizing open remembered experiences with language.
