Sketchbooks into soap opera. And it’s nearly here!
This September you can tune in to nightly episodes of Telenovela, a soap opera made out of my life and my sketchbooks (and the gap between them). Set in Brazil and the UK, it promises to be a thrilling adventure blurring fiction and documentary; with all the cliffhangers and mundanity you’d expect when you try and televise your life.
Each episode will be released nightly or you can join us for an outdoor cinema screening of the whole series on the full moon of 10th September 2022. Tickets for the live event can be booked here. The event is Pay What You Can but places are limited and booking is essential.
For exclusive links to every episode sign up to the Telenovela mailing list here. It will air each night at 9pm on the internet from 10th September 2022.
There have been lots of things happening this summer as part of this project including 2 creative workshops exploring autobiography and art, an artist talk and a dinner sharing glimpses into the making process. This is an international collaboration between artists in the UK and Brazil. There will be two new films created by associate artists Mark Croasdale and Audrey Albert.
Telenovela is commissioned by HOME and Islington Mill. It is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
