The Invisible Artists Carnival

The Invisible Artists Carnival is a multi-disciplinary performance work created by Other Hearts with Erin Ball. The production focuses on a collection of rag-tag circus folk led by Patches T. Barker, Applique von Battenburg, and Buttons. Over the course of the show, they make various attempts to contact The Invisible Artists (portrayed and created by artists from Halifax's Mad and Disability communities), a legendary, multi-faced figure who vanished several years ago. These attempts vary in form, from clown turns and aerial silks to cinema projection and audience participatory ritual, and ultimately succeed, culminating in a theatrical carnival of light, music, and creative joy.
