Short Film : Raw Rewards
IN CONVERSATION with…
“If we had not done what we did at Dungeness we would not know what we know now. We would not have that knowledge.”
The collaboration involved walking on the stony barren beaches of Dungeness in mid December 2017 in seasonal, but wholly inhospitable weather; locating ourselves in particular unsheltered spots that anchored, drove and shaped our actions.
All actions were relative to the circumstances, directed by the environment. Records were made on pre-prepared paper working only with what was found, extracted, mined in the cold, wet and windy conditions. These “works” looked to capture the moments of their production where scraping, grinding and pulling boards across rocks and sand left “histories”, capturing the physical and sensory connections involved. Would they reflect what was being felt? Would the outcomes measure up with the sensorial difficulties?
“Raw Rewards”, Incidents from Dungeness, are products of “touching with the earth”, where the environment refuses interaction – sandwiched between the savagery of the elements and the coping strategies for recording in extreme discomfort. No transference of pleasantries…more the exhilaration of coping with raw difficulty; strategies sustaining efforts “keeping us out there”.
A 2 Act play in the form of a meeting about writing a play, as a play.
