Green Grass: A Rolling Project

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


An ongoing practice throughout the Great Exhibition of the North FRINGE leading to a final culminating event on Friday 7th September 2018

The North is where we are. It is the earth beneath our feet and the air we breathe. Throughout the Great Exhibition of the North, Green Grass will utilise the physical activities of rolling, reclining and resting to investigate our relationship to the ground below us, specifically in this case the winding slope of artificial grass outside Student Central, Northumbria University City Campus. The ability to roll over from lying face/body up to face/body down or vice versa is fundamental to child movement development yet as adults we tend not to use this opportunity to experience our world from ground level. In Green Grass rolling will open up space to move and think through questions of ecology, care, status and freedom. Rolling up and/or down the slope, Liz Pavey will develop a regular practice of rolling and resting alone or with others, rolling with/over/under, rolling in silence and in conversation. She will be inviting people to join her.
