We're working with Aenne!
We're please to announce our collaboration on a special project with photographer Aenne Pallasca!
Aenne will be working with us to document the build and the 'Life in Close-Up' season of work, and having seen her previous work, we can't wait to see what she produces. On working with us, and the project itself, Aenne said;
"I am a photographer and writer. I was born in Germany and am now based in Newport, where I'm currently enrolled on a BA Documentary Photography course. After gaining extensive experience and training in acting and directing during my youth, my photographic practice is now focused on arts and culture, on the importance of creativity and participation.
Recent projects include 'In the Spot' in co-operation with Cardiff's NoFit State Circus, and 'Sleeping Beauties' about the production of a children's play in Sherman Cymru Theatre, Cardiff. I have produced work for the National Student Drama Festival 2014 and international performing arts festival All Change.
The project will document The Other Room being built and going into its first season. It will mix a photojournalistic approach with an original artistic technique, to chronicle the first steps of a pub theatre and to capture the creativity and excitement of everyone involved. From December/January to May I will immerse myself in the environment and focus on both the space and its people, hoping to create a documentation as distinct as possible."
We can't wait to see what Aenne comes up with!
