The Role Of The Village Idiot
Sarah Doyle will be embodying the spirit of Pierrot the original emo kid for The Role Of The Village Idiot
"This work is based on ideas and suggestions by the artist and writer Paul O'Kane concerning the question of a necessary expulsion that may lie at the heart of the formation of any community."
THE ROLE OF THE VILLAGE IDIOT
An afternoon of public art/street performance on Peckham Square Saturday
28th March 2009, 2pm til 6pm.
The theme of the afternoon is performance and the role of the village idiot. Obviously we have the holy fools, shakespears court jester, the dada art movement, but the village idiot is something else he/she is something other, something familiar, somebody we all know and recognise in our local communities. Here we will attempt to investigate, the role of the village idiot, the question of 'a necessary expulsion', the emotion of shame and how that relates to our daily life and the strange people that we meet, street theatre and public art. Mainly using gesture and small props the artists will attempt to engage with the everyday happenings in peckham square. There will be a reception in the Bunhouse Pub opposite peckham square in the evening.
curated by Mark McGowan.
