THRESHOLD 2014: A Little Bit of Curiosity | Sophie Green


This is the last blog from Katy James before the Threshold Festival swings into action. This time round Katy picks out two non-musical events that caught her attention artist Sophie Green and Chester based arts company Curiosity. 

I thought I’d write a little about another couple of performances and visual pieces taking place at the festival that have intrigued me…

A Little Bit of Curiosity is an event taking place at the festival, created by independent arts company, Curiosity Arts, consisting of two dance students from the University of Chester.

The naming of this event is very clever, and from what I’ve read about it, I’m not quite sure what to expect from it! It is a space that invites people to engage their own curiosities and question why they are at that particular space. It is something for the audience to be actively involved in and explore what it means to be curious. The reason I’ve chosen to tell you about this particular event is because it has an element of mystery. Everybody is curious about something, it is human nature, and I am definitely curious about this space!

Are you curious? Well go along to Baltic Bakehouse today (Fri 28) and find out for yourself

Sophie Green is a Liverpool based artist and illustrator who will be producing a variety of her work at the festival. She was recently named as ‘one to watch’ in the Independent on Sunday’s 2013 Pink List. Her artwork is fun and colourful, with an element of humour thrown into the mix too. Sophie’s brilliant skills are very evident in her work, I’ve been looking through everything on her website and wanting to put it all on my bedroom wall!

If you’re into art, have a sense of humour, and like all things bright and beautiful, then don’t miss out on Sophie’s work this weekend on display at the Palmer Hill building – on the corner of Brindley Street & Caryl Street.

Thanks Katy
