Very special to have collaborated with the Cliftonville Cultural Space curate and produce this awesome happening as part of the Margate NOW Festival '21 taking place in the Sunken Garden. This site specific SUKKAH was commissioned to be designed and built by visual artist Dominic Rose and Screen Printer / Artist Charlie Evaristo-Boyce. The brief was to challenge them to create a Sukkah (a structure built outside by Jews across the globe to hark back to the time when the Jewish Diaspora was wondering in the desert and staring out at the stars. It is also a harvest festival).
There were live performances including Guinean musican Falle Nioke, Klezmer musicians Jonathan Norton & Adina Pressman, Margate Djembe Drummers and local Roma musicians.
Kids came and made pretty rosettes to hang off the sukkah made out of dried lemons (it is traditional to hang fruit and vegetables off the structure).
It was a beautiful installation - a radical take on Succus, a way of reframing it to celebrate all people, culture, nature, music, art, the outdoors and community.
