Alongside her role as RBC Administrative Assistant, Alexandra Hackett is an artist specialising in film and photography, who features in the collaborative film titled ‘Kindred: Our Roots Entwined’.
The film is a multi-disciplinary project with artists in the Midlands, Bristol and Wales using written word, music and photography to explore their relationship with nature.
The project is run by dancer and choreographer Fleur Hall, and Alexandra is joined by poet Katharine Baxter and musician Leon Bailey to look at how nature can change us as much as we can change nature.
‘Kindred’ will premiere on Thursday 31 March at The Hub at St Mary’s Lichfield and will run until Sunday 10 April. The project was funded by Arts Council England, The Crystal Hare, and with support from The Hub at St Mary’s Lichfield.
The film project also encompasses a fun, creative workshop using household plants to create beautiful melodies with electronic music. This will take place in Bristol on Saturday 12 March, from 11am – 3.30pm. Book now.
Alexandra said: “We’ve had a lot of fun on this project, and we’re really proud of what we’ve achieved, in particularly the multi-disciplinary aspect, as in doing so we have supported music makers, filmmakers, performing artists and even writers all across the UK to come together.”
