Fatty

Participants: Jessica Hickie-Kallenbach, Joel Wycherley, Laurie Tompkins

Series: Festival of New, Residencies

Ideas explored: integrating visual art with music, music and theatre, music influenced by current events

Fatty pilots a series of shows performed in and as TV. Fatty’s ultimate destination is to be binged as ‘episodes’ on screen(s). Jessica is episode 1’s lead.

Joel’s set is inside/outside: TV set, front lawn, magnolia y mould, dredged up ornaments. Laurie lags on violin, synth, samples; Jessica watches and sings. The mind runs fast while the body sags, sludge in a cage, fat coagulating on bones.

Joel is a visual artist and Laurie a composer. Joel has made videos and images for Laurie’s music in the past, but ‘Fatty’ is their first substantial collaboration from the ground up. Jessica is a singer, who sings in the group Still House Plants and has a strong visual sensibility. This is the first time we’ve all worked together, and it feels natural and strange.
