SINK OR SWIM
by Giddy Aunt
SINK OR SWIM is a sensory gig in a swimming pool for early years. It was developed through a 6 month artist residency that Claire held with Platform in Easterhouse, where she worked with the Play Cafe in weekly sessions. With sound design by Rob Jones and co-performed by Clare Marcie, SINK OR SWIM was first shared as a work-in-development at Platform and Starcatcher’s Made in Easterhouse 10th Birthday celebrations. Claire was recently awarded a Michael Grandage Futures Fund, which has paid for high quality underwater speakers for use in SINK OR SWIM, and she is looking forward to developing the piece further with support from Starcatchers in 2017/ 2018.
