Those of you who have read The Snow Witch novel will be familiar with the name Lissitch. He is a tricky character and plays a central role to the story. It seems though that he has stepped out of the imagination of author Matt Wingett and off the pages of the book into real life.
When we started the research for the project this was one of the first areas we explored and very enjoyable it was too. We went to see a number of traditional Balkan bands and there was a lot of dancing and it was a lot of fun.
When we initially had the idea for the Cursed City – Dark Tide project, people said they wanted to see Dontiza playing the violin.
We have been playing with the idea of immersive experiences for a while now and really wanted to bring some truly immersive events to Portsmouth.
Our next workshop in the series is a street art workshop at Aspex Gallery with local artist Roo Abrook.
