About the Facilitators

Elaine Foster-Gandey

Elaine Foster-Gandey is a local Artist, teacher and workshop facilitator.  Her work takes on a number of different forms including performance, installation, textiles, sculpture, painting and print.  Her many years of professional involvement with the Fashion industry, combined with her interest in mask and costume, provide a rich visual resource that informs all her practice.  Elaine’s longstanding interest in identity and gender issues provide much of her work’s theoretical underpinning.

Belinda Papavasiliou

Belinda Papavasileiou is a Brighton based artist exploring the body in relation to improvisation, choreography, drawing, writing and found or made objects and environments. Belinda is constantly intrigued by the malleable ability of the body to relate and connect with other bodies, animals, land and environment and aims through her practice to embrace marginalised concepts like uncertainty, wandering, intimacy, pleasure, resistance and play.

Carlos Ara

Originally from Barcelona, Carlos is an actor who graduated in the dramatic arts from the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona.  His curiosity between theatre and movement led him to choose physical theatre and puppetry as a speciality alongside different dance genre’s whilst continuing his studies as an actor.  He created the cutting edge street theatre company, CarroF.C. which led him to develop a new path in non conventional spaces and the use of public spaces as a platform to act.
