Paller visit Sunday October 5th
After two days of live performance in London and Swindon, Catalonian
arts company El Paller and their family members had a chance to
wind down at an informal social gathering at SVA. Here they met
some of the artists that are involved in SVA projects with the view
of discussing possible cultural exchanges. The visit to the UK had
been coordinated by the artist Marie-Louise Flexen who collaborated
with them on this project. Food, drink, live music, footage from
their most recent performances and much discussion were all enjoyed.
El Paller are now working on a return visit to coincide with the
next Site Festival in June.
