Hands Full – Phenomenal People
Sophia Clist – Fuel
Fuel commissioned a group of artists to choose an inspirational woman and create a short performance for Phenomenal People at Women of the World festival 2012, Southbank Centre. Sophia chose Penny Bernand, founder and artistic director of Theatre-Rites and made a performance sculpture, Hands Full – a meditation on the endless tasks of motherhood. Phenomenal People toured to several venues in 2014 and 2015.
Sophia continues to develop Hands Full in performance, alongside evolving the work into a participatory installation that Theatre Absolute commissioned as part of Shop Front Festival, Coventry. Hands Full is currently showing in Paper Play at Thelma Hulbert Gallery in a further large-scale collaboration with local community groups in a newly devised workshop series.
