At the start of lockdown (version 1.0) a potential live performance collaboration turned into an ambitious podcast idea. And thanks to mentors and the support of Arts Council England, this podcast has now come into being.
The Fateful Tale of Chesapeake Bay is a 4-part podcast made with Judith Anketell about the ecological decline of the Chesapeake Bay. It’s a scientific and historical narrative told by artists, so it’s full of poetry and song as well as facts and musings. It is a desperate and tragic tale with points of light dotted throughout. The final episode will air on January 1st 2021 to mark a fresh start, including conversations with inspirational individuals who are taking the time to spread awareness, engagement and enjoyment of nature.
Here are some links so you can listen:
Oddvent is an online advent calender curated by Gemma Brockiss specifically for the isolated, but not exclusively so. Every day gives the audience a new door behind which a magical work of art, or moment, or image is, each celebrating an object and made by an artist.
Miriam was fortunate enough to collaborate with Susanne Dietz for her contribution (10th Dec, also the first day of Hanukka).
To visit the calendar please go to oddvent.com and you can purchase the keys/passwords to unlock all the doors that have been as well as those still to come. Some of the incredible artists included in this gorgeous project are award-winning performance-maker Melanie Wilson, Tai Shani (Turner Prize winner) and Shamira Turner and Eugenie Pastor (of Little Bulb and She Goat)
