This year Frank n Hank will be running Frank n Hank’s Big Wig Ceremonial Dance Party. Drawing on and re interpreting traditional May Day celebrations, participating dancers will take part in a choreographed chaos dance to bless and celebrate the new site. A Queen Big Wig will be chosen and, garlanded in finery to become guardian of the good party vibes, holding court until the next festival.
Frances Heap and Hannah Bitowski were part of the Art Direction team 2015. As Costumologist x Faux Queens they created Microcosmic Delirium, an infectious party spirit, which encompassing costume, instillation and performance, spread across the venues and over the population of the festival. This year they return as Frank and Hank and are looking to wreak havoc in this new and exciting format.
