Neck and Neck

PRESENTED ON FEB 25, 2016
IN DUNDEE @ VOL 14

 Siôn Parkinson shares the gruesome yet fascinating history and characteristics of the ever-vital body part, the neck. With Siôn's comedic performance, this will be a presentation you won't want to miss. 

Siônis an artist, singer and producer. His performances often see him appearing in costume to invoke the voice of an animal, variously a burning elephant, a stuffed walrus, a lovelorn worm, and most recently a seal who talks and vomits. His work as a producer for Cape Farewell’s ‘Sea Change’ project took him to the Isle of Mull where he was Creative Director of Exhibitions for Comar, a role that in turn inspired his return to Dundee, the city in which he was born. He is producer of the inaugural Dundee Design Festival 2016. @sionparkinson

Because Chickens

BY GRETCHEN BEDELL
@ VOL 14 ON OCT 17, 2015

"This is the stuff dreams are made of, which is why you should have chickens in your backyard because you can have experiences like these."

In "Because Chickens", from PechaKucha Williamsburg Vol. 14, Gretchen Bedell shares the hazards, perils, and general ridiculousness of suburban chicken keeping. She explains how her "Mexican ground parrots" as she calls them to circumnavigate the homeowners association's chicken ban. are basically just like fish for the backyard, but they lay eggs you actually want to eat. You bound to learn something interesting in this quirky PechaKucha, for example how one can actually reclaim eggs from thieving snakes.
