Keeping His Feet on the Ground
“The right to land: the ordinary landless man or woman’s right to rent about an eighth of an acre of their own country for the purpose of growing some food…” Irene Evans Allotment Provision for the People
On Bristol’s Golden Hill allotments, Tom Marshman explores the allotment plot as a performance space, putting a personal stamp on a shared community of skill and tradition. Keeping His Feet on the Ground continues Marshman’s obsession with making the ordinary extraordinary and drawing magic from the everyday. Shows will take place for a limited audience of 20 over July, August and September, the performance changing as the seasons evolve.
“Tom’s performance captivates – an understated charismatic soul he manages to propel between pathos and comedy – desolation and laughter resonate throughout” Live Art Magazine
