1. ...so that was Brighton Fringe!
Blooming Ludus completed our performances of Power Story at this year's Brighton Fringe (13-14, 27-29 May 2017). Thanks for all who came and supported Power Story including O2 Think Big. The Mayor and The Fox will keep continuing conversations around the energy for their little town Bloomington.

2. Blooming Ludus at an academic symposium
Blooming Ludus joined the academic symposium "Asian Performing Arts: Collaboration and Exchange" at Royal Holloway on the 30th May. This symposium on Asian music, theatre and dance addressed the state of play incollaborative performance making in contemporary Asia and the participation of Asian artists in global performance projects and exchanges. Haeweon and Francine presented a lecture-demonstration: "Building, Un-building, Connecting Cities: Critical Reflection on Collaboration with Korean Pansori Artists for the ‘How Much Space Do We Need for Living?’ Project". We talked about our experience collaborating with Taroo for 'How Much Space Do We Need for Living?' and played ttangttameokgi(땅따먹기) with participants as a part of demonstration of our showcase performance in Korea.
