The White Horse

Executively produced this large-scale participatory performance by Jess Oliveri and The Parachutes for Ladies.

After a week of workshops with local community participants, this project involved over two hundred costumed characters travelling in a spectacular parade through the streets of Bloemfontein in South Africa. The thirty-minute performance culminated in a celebratory feast and community dance ritual. A number of the characters involved in the live event subsequently became subjects in a photographic series and storybook style publication.

Commissioned by SITUATE and presented at the Vrystaat Arts Festival, South Africa 2015
