"I love a well-told story. Stories come in a number of new formats these days, from movies, to songs, to video games! Little did I realize that I'd find my favorite type of story by sitting around a table with my friends, telling a story that I didn't know the ending to." -ah

Storytelling

BY PATRICK COLE
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Patrick Cole (b. 1986 in London, UK).
Working in the mediums of sculpture and performance, Cole’s work shifts between the Bardic tradition and the actions of a contemporary prop comic. Historically a Bard worked as a storyteller, seeking to create catharsis for the general public. The Bards’ stories would satirise the lives of his audience and act as a social cleanser. A prop comic uses props and staging to enhance the performance, using these tools to connect with and provoke a reaction from the audience. Cole’s work has these ideas at its core.
