The Plank is an open community group where we explore many aspects of free improvisation and group playing. The sessions consist of some structured activity and some free play. We welcome artists of other mediums to respond within the space, or those that want to be passive within the space.
The 2023 programme has been supported by The Ranworth Trust and as a result we have been able to invite a number of guest artists to lead sessions, and make use of a variety of different venues.
This session will be led by Michelle Brace, focussing on projections.
Michelle is a digital and mixed media visual artist who works with natural materials, collage, mark making, text and photographic textures to build colourful visual compositions for projection and live performance.
She has recently been performing as part of an audio / visual trio with trumpeter Chris Dowding and artist Laure Van Minden adding a projected dimension to their live collaborative work.
Her focus is often on remixing live video feeds of one sort of another – dancers, live drawing, nature and… on this occasion, water!
In this workshop an immersive projection will be created by several artists, where musicians and sound artists will be invited to respond.

Please note: You may bring anything you like; instruments, objects, devices….
Please bring your own amplification if required, there is no PA.
You are welcome to observe, we welcome anyone who wants to form an audience.
The Plank is an entirely open platform, it will be curated and facilitated by Eastern Ear where appropriate but we welcome suggestions of any nature.
If you have a personal objective from attending ‘The Plank’ (such as to work with a drummer) then please make that clear to us at the beginning of the session.
