Not to Scale - An exhibition of costume for street theatre performance by Alex Rigg is opening at Gracefield Arts Centre on 16th July. Alex Rigg is based in Moniaive, Dumfries and has been designing, making and performing live events since 1982. His work has taken him around the world and he has collaborated with many different artists. Curated by Denise Mary Rayner Zygadlo, the exhibition is the latest development of Alex's ongoing work, and the costumes he has designed for the project, which will be on show in Gracefield Arts Centre over the summer. Alongside these will be a selection of his costumes from previous projects and an insight into his creative process and techniques exploring writing, drawing, stitching, building…….. This exhibition offers the opportunity to have costumes made to commission for theatre companies, film companies, performance groups or individuals who just want something extraordinary to wear themselves! On Saturday 20th August 7pm – 8pm there will be a surreal and spectacular performance with music of Not To Scale in the grounds of Gracefield - £5 pre-book: 01387 253383 Photo by Colin Hattersley
