How Do You Are Beach

The festival was made for the locations on the two sides of the river and the people who live there. As artists, we are always presented with a frame in which to work inside of. The sunshine and the beach only make everything more enjoyable- for everybody. The installations of Mark Jenkins, From Pen to Paper to the Streets (Pictoplasma), Metal Stage, and the Housing Projects were made specifically for the festival. They have been created to give a different dimension to the locations and the viewer. They are there to put a different spin on a typical installation situation and to open up the eyes of the people who will be passing by and hopefully take notice. My goal was to have the audience participate as much as the artists did. The whole festival was like a piece itself. It is an infiltration of Royan, Soulac, Talais and Grayon. We slowly took over the the estuary for a few days, subtlely, but nonetheless with presence.

Housing Projects is a site specific work created to invite the audience to rediscover, with fresh eyes, the city they live in. Based on the Hebbel Theater's X-Wohnungen, each unique space will transformed by 12 different artists into a completely new or distinctly different environment. The goal is to explore the relationship between public and private, distance and intimacy, fantasy and reality and how one can inhabit a space. The artists are a diverse mix of dancers, musicians, artists, designers and actors. The 15 minute performances will be repeated throughout the day for an intimate audience of 2 to 5 people who will be given a map and a time table to find their way through the city of Royan in order to have their next personal experience.
