Ryan joins Screen Bandita at Summerhall

January 27, 2014

Screen Bandita and myself will be teaming up  for some audio-visual shenanigans on Tuesday February 11 at Summerhall, hope to see you there!

Adrift (In the Archive)

Harnessing spoken word, found celluloid film, slides, vintage ephemera and gramophones, Van Winkle and Screen Bandita conjure forth a mesmerising and surreal piece that unfolds and unpacks suitcases of memory, place and experience.
Drawing inspiration from the stories springing from the resonant walls and dusty corners of times past, these archival inquisitors weave a new audio visual tapestry before your very eyes; unravelling stories and episodes suspended in time and illuminating those fragments of presence and memory lingering in and about the ether, left behind by the rich cast of characters who have passed through.

What: Adrift (In the Archive)

Where: Summerhall, Edinburgh, EH9 1PL

When: 7.30-8.15pm, Tuesday February 11

How Much: £5

Ryan joins Screen Bandita in the Battersea Arts Centre

October 30, 2013

I’ll be in London this weekend working on a scratch theatre piece with Screen Bandita, cooking up some collage poems with your old photos and spools of super 8 film. It’s at the Battersea Arts Centre, Sunday 3 November, 10am-1pm, and it’s totally free. See you there!

Screen Bandita and Ryan Van Winkle invite you to contribute to their participatory, community gathering: a welcoming space in which to share, speak and see.

Do you have any spools of Super 8 film or old slides gathering dust in the attic? Bring them along and we’ll project them for you! And if you have any old photographs you’d like to share, come and display them in our pop-up gallery! Soundtracking the afternoon will be a pair of antiquated Russian gramophones and a myriad of interesting records from our collection.

Poet Ryan Van Winkle would be pleased to see any old newspaper clippings, scrapbooks or to talk about memorable local events. We’ll also have copies of posters and clippings from the BAC archive and Ryan will be leading a workshop on ‘collage poems’ melding your own history with that of the area.

Suitable for young and old, this friendly, informal session is a chance to rediscover films from your collection, as well as an opportunity share memories, recollections and stories.

What: Bring Your Own Archive with Screen Bandita

Where: Battersea Arts Centre, Lavender Hill, Battersea, London, SW11 5TN

When: Sunday 3 November, 10am-1pm

How Much: FREE
