Amada Miller: The sun is a star too

Nicholas Frank: 1 I 2 Ü, A Play In Three Acts

Thursday 8 August, 6 pm, at Alice Yard

In early August 2019, artists Amada Miller and Nicholas Frank are in residence at Alice Yard. On Thursday 8 August, they will present a range of site-specific new work inviting active audience participation.

Amada Miller’s The sun is a star too is a compendium of naturally dyed fabric paintings using zaboca, turmeric, roucou, sorrel, coconut, and other locally-sourced ingredients, and a folkloric history of the origin of avocado in chapbook form.

Nicholas Frank’s 1 I 2 Ü, A Play In Three Acts is a theatrical presentation that operates in the boundaries between actor and audience, individual and collective, island and horizon. Frank will also mint a new Alice Yard currency.

All are invited to attend and participate.

6 pm: assemble in Alice Yard
6.30 pm: Painting Promenade begins near Augustus Williams Park and through the neighbourhood
7 pm: play begins in Alice Yard
8 to 10 pm: Afterbar: Cocktails by Amada
