Bluecoat Display Centre (BDC) will deliver a unique free artist event delivered to coincide with the EU Day of Creativity on 21st March with early career ceramicist Adam Buick linked to our Equinox (http://www.bluecoatdisplaycentre.com/?post_type=events&p=13382) exhibition curated by one of our supporting gallery staff; Megan Hartley-Roberts.

Adam Buick (http://www.adambuick.com) is a Pembrokeshire based ceramicist and conceptual artist who also works with photography and film. Before his training in ceramics, he studied archaeology and anthropology. Hence, his aim is to incorporate elements from the landscape into his works. Adam makes white porcelain moon jars, a Moon Jar is an ancient Korean form originally made from plain white porcelain. Adam was so inspired by this pure form that he now uses it as the composition for his work. He incorporates stone and locally dug clay into his work to create a narrative, one that conveys a unique sense of place.
My work uses a single pure jar form as a canvas to map my observations from an ongoing study of my surroundings. Landscapes have inspired artists for generations but for me a landscape has to be felt. With my site-specific work I too am venerating the landscape.

Event Schedule
1.45pm. Arrive for the event to the Bluecoat Performance Space
2pm. Welcome and introductions by Samantha Rhodes, Director Bluecoat Display Centre
2.15 - 3.15pm Adam will demonstrate various aspects of his throwing and coiling techniques.

3.30pm. There will be the opportunity to watch some of the films Adam has made.
Adam's film projects include 'Earth to Earth' In this piece a raw, unfired Jar, made from a blend of local clays was placed at the top of Carn Treliwyd to weather away. There are cycles within nature some quick, others slow and this artwork illustrates one cycle as a metaphor for all. Made from the earth, the wind and rain will return it back to the earth.
4.30pm. Adam will return to the BDC for refreshments and to give the audience the opportunity to see and discuss informally his work in the Equinox exhibition.

Spanish theater in full of histories. However we often forget that women are a very important part of those histories. All kind of women (mothers, widows, raped woman, singles women...) appear in the texts of Lope de Vega to Lorca, to form the hole identity of what a woman is.
With the help of our actresses and their shawl all the women became one only character. So only with the movement of our shawl and our position we change to one character to another. Through their words we will see the hardness of Lucrecia, the games of La Celestina, and the pain of Rosita la Soltera...All of this women, and others, are the protagonists of our play.
The game is let the public to guest which character we are playing.
This performance pretend to be ascetic, without artifices. Only the word and the gesture to make cry, laugh...to the public.

We only need any stage, and our three women in the middle of it with their shawl to make all the women become to live.
