STOCKHOLM FRINGE FESTIVAL PHOTOGRAPHS

We ventured to Stockholm last month to deliver our first iteration of our Running with Wolves project. The project was programmed as a part of the Stockholm Fringe Festival (STOFF) and saw us delivering mask making workshops throughout the festival.

The festival got off to a slow start but as the weekend approached more people started stopping by to make a mask with us including fellow STOFF artists, local children and friendly Australian travellers who were passing through Stockholm. By the Saturday our tables were so chock-a-block that potential wolves were sprawled out on the floor making their masks.

Below are a couple of images from the Stockholm Fringe Festival. Some more photographs of the our project can be viewed on the Running with Wolves project page here.

Stockholm Fringe Festival Masks

As we prepare for our Running with Wolves project at Stockholm Fringe Festival we thought it would be a good idea to produce some wolf masks from our own templates to show you how they might look. The templates can be downloaded for free as PDF documents from our project page here.

Layla made two masks; for one (pictured above) she used one of the mask templates as a basis from which she built up a more solid three dimensional mask using masking tape. This has then been painted with gouache and embellished with ribbons. Layla’s second mask (below) was a more simple affair that she decorated with red felt tip pen.

Spike printed a mask onto card (bottom) and then stuck a piece of black linen fabric to the back – the card acts a support ensuring that the mask retains it’s shape. He then cut this out and decorated it with stitches using a variety of cotton threads. If you attempt a similar mask to this then do make sure that you have a good strong needle to pierce the card support at the back of the fabric.

We are delighted to have had our “Running with Wolves” project selected for inclusion in this year’s Stockholm Fringe Festival programme.

The Stockholm Fringe Fest mission is to shape a creative platform hosting artists from all over the world. Stoff welcomes the young, the old and everyone in between. The Festival is for those who want to explore, criticise, exchange, question, enjoy, be surprised and for those who simply want to be a part of a thrilling atmosphere where anything is possible.

What slightly differentiates STOFF from a traditional Fringe Festival is that our current primary focus is on promoting performance theatre and installation art; the new, the innovative and the cutting edge. As STOFF grows we hope to be able to diversify further and become a fringe festival open for all forms of artistic expression.

A number of our Wolves will be travelling to Stockholm this summer where we will be delivering mask making workshops as a part of STOFF in the Kulturhuset Stockholm building. These workshops will culminate in a daily procession around the venue and into the streets of Stockholm.

You’ll be able to join in with our mask making activities daily and there will also be opportunities to get involved online too so do bookmark our project page on this website for further information and updates or follow us on Twitter.

In the meantime check out the STOFF website for all the latest news from the fringe.
