Live Art with Donna Huddleston

November 2008
Donna Huddleston’s practice investigates themes of transformation, gesture and the figure. She is interested in creating situations where narrative is explored in a dialogue between drawings, installations devices, often props and costume.

Influenced by the themes of performance, ritual and gesture present in David Noonan’s work, along with a shared sense of these themes within Huddleston’s own practice, storytelling and transformation were at the heart of Huddleston’s project with Year Five at Chisenhale Primary School.

Together they explored these ideas during the residency through dressing up, making costumes & props and examining various ways of image making to devise and tell a story. In the end the children created their own story, which was shown in the shape of a film and an installation in the school foyer.
