Sheila’s latest project uses all of the research, knowledge and experience developed during Rambles With Nature to inform the making of a new quartet of works meditating on 'The Elements'. The four pieces will explore:
Sulphur, the first in the series is currently being written by Sheila for multiple voices/performers. Once this period of writing has been undertaken and the words and actions have been settled on Sheila expects to collaborate with a film-maker and musician to compliment the performers, but the words will be most important - how they unfold, their rhythm, their patterning, what they're communicating, the dialogue they open up between those on stage and audiences, their choreography.
Early research into this project is supported by a Wellcome Library Research Bursary (Jan - June 2016). Sheila is now looking for further funding and residencies to support this project. Get in touch if you're interested!
