MAPS Festival: Drama duo Chloe and Sam announced for arts festival
A fun-filled sketch theatre double act will be bringing their show to a new Preston arts festival.
MAPS Festival will welcome Chloe and Sam to the programme.
The duo aim to create work that is engaging, honest and playful – and we caught up with them to find out more.
Why are you taking part in MAPS?
I love arts festivals, and to have a chance to be a part of a debut festival is a fantastic opportunity. From the outset MAPS looked like it offered something very different which made us want to apply, the programme looks very exciting and the venues look fab! The whole event will bring very new and exciting ideas and work to the people of Preston and beyond.
What is your act?
Hamster in the midst
Where are you from?
How long have you been an artist?
Ooh… I’d say since I started my studies in 2006 but in reality I have only began to really understand my practice since 2009
What do you do when not an artist?
I work rubbish jobs, to make money, to put into my creative work, and the cycle continues…
What do you think/know of the arts scene in Preston?
It is completely new to me, which excites me and is another reason why we wanted to bring our work to MAPS
Where have you shown work before?
At one work in practice platform called ‘Open Stage’ at The Bike Shed Theatre in Exeter.
Anything else you think we should know?
I laugh quite loudly… sometimes too loudly…
