Platform Residency: Beatriz Olabarrieta

Tue 09 Feb 2016 – Sat 12 Mar 2016 Platform Residency: Beatriz Olabarrieta (open )

Beatriz Olabarrieta’s work merges the languages of writing, theatre and visual art. For her residency here at Site she will be scripting a new play, starring a cast of sculptures that she will build on-site using locally-sourced materials; the play will give voices and personalities to inanimate objects.

Visit Beatriz in the gallery during usual opening hours (11am – 5.30pm), to see how her play is progressing. The works will be assembled on site and will be worked and re-worked, over the course of five weeks culminating in a final performance on Saturday 12 March at 3pm (book here).
