JENNIFER Taylor works with film and live performance to create absurd scenarios that explore ritualistic behaviour and obscure ceremonial practices

She uses abandoned structures in remote landscapes as found stage sets and will be at Oriel Mwldan at Theatre Mwldan in Cardigan on Saturday, July 14 (7.30pm) for a closing performance of ‘Chamber’.

Ancient Neolithic burial chambers and obscure towers in Wales provide surreal, displaced settings that bring a sense of post-apocalyptic degeneration.

Taylor often then recreates fabricated versions of these settings within galleries, with lo-fi fluorescent caves and stone circles into which she introduces costumed performers who gather to act out certain rituals, referencing the mysticism associated with such sites and bringing in other science fiction elements.

Tangled tubing and cumbersome giant balloons act as ludicrous, ominous props as her malfunctioning pantomimes unfold.

You will have a chance to see one of her performances in a special exhibition closing event on July 14 at 7.30pm that is free to attend and open to everyone.

If you are interested in being part of the performance, either as one of the performers or helping to prepare in the preceding week by making costumes or sets, please get in touch.

We are also interested in hearing from people who might want to play instruments as part of the performance.

Admission to the gallery is free. See or contact 01239 621200 for further details.
