Between oneandanother was a participatory art event for Made in Roath,
The activities brought about a connection between people, strangers through movement, through something tactile. The use of fabric props were tools for interaction. They were there to be worn, tugged at, experimented with spacially and physically with people and the environment around them.
The set of instructions that I created for each prop were to be adhered to, or not at all. I enjoy the ideas that naturally form and improvisation that happens. Although the instructions varied and responses likewise, the premise was that two or more people were joined together, testing things out.
What arose through the course of the activities was that people didn't have to know each other, nor be of the same age. Relationships were being formed within the space. The games brought together people from the community who had not met before, and there was a special moment when Cat's Cradle was being taught to a little girl by an elderly lady who didn't expect to do this on her afternoon dog walking duty.
