Kate McIntosh, In Many Hands

In recent years, audiences to Kate McIntosh’s works have been involved in many different ways –they have been invited to take part as accomplices, craftsmen, orchestra-members and rain-makers. This project steps away from the stage -instead bringing the audience into a series of aesthetic sensory situations, inviting them to experiment with materials and encounter physical phenomena themselves. In Many Hands is part laboratory, part expedition, part meditation - as it unfolds, visitors take their time to engage and explore as they wish, following their noses and curiosities. Returning to Fierce for the third time, Kate's work is guided by her ongoing fascinations with the misuse of objects, playfulness with the audience and an off-beat humour.

‘After about 45 minutes, there is probably no one in the room whose hands are not completely filthy... A rare and wonderful offer to concentrate on yourself without losing sight of your fellow human beings.’

Fierce Says

Fierce isn’t generally a fan of audience participation but we are in LOVE with this show. Its democratic format means everyone engages on an equal level, and nobody is left feeling exposed. We don’t want to give too much away – just trust us and come, we had a transcendental experience. A festival highlight.
