Hallucinating Angels is a company of artists who worked together on WE ARE FOR SALE and BAND OF GOLD. Both of these productions were part of an on-going residency at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, a contemporary art gallery with an international reputation. Our remit and team is changing and developing with each new project. As we responded to the humanity behind celebrity masks in WE ARE FOR SALE and discovered an abundance of stories and appetite for art relating to ‘ordinary’ lives in BAND OF GOLD, our focus has become the life and stories of the community. SHOES told personal stories of journeys from the domestic to the epic in film and live performance with a company also drawn from the community.
As we reveal a community to itself by exploring its stories and skills we are supporting that with modern technologies, using them in the service of authenticity and accessibility.
Our work has been generously supported by Arts Council England, the De La Warr Pavilion and its team, especially curator David Rhodes.
