Seán Vicary introduces new work developed as part of his recent Arts Council Wales Creative Wales award. He will join Professor Kirsti Bohata in conversation to discuss his latest animation, a response to Alan Garner’s cult novel ‘The Owl Service’.
An Animate Evening
Small World Theatre presents an opportunity to experience a different kind of animation, with an evening with experimental agency Animate Projects and its co-founder and director, Gary Thomas.
Animate Projects has an international reputation for supporting experimental animation, working with a wide range of artists to make work that is provocative and exciting. Gary will take us on a whirlwind tour of earlier British experiments in animation – from silent cinema (and earlier), through Post Office ads in the 1940s, and the revolutionary moment of A Yellow Submarine. He’s also bringing a selection of some of the contemporary films by artists that Animate has worked with over the last 25 years, including works for television, collaborations with scientists, and a singing appendix.
Tickets are £7 and include entry to both events. We’ll take a break after Sean’s screening and you are welcome to order a bowl of soup (V) to eat during the interval. Please contact the Box Office if you need more information or have a dietary requirement.
