ELEANOR CAPSTICK is an artist asking what happens when a frog emerges from the bottom of a well. She looks for answers in puddles of sound, text, and performance. A clutch of characters – from Cher to the Great Crested Newt - swim through these investigations. Both artist and audience are engaged in acts of puppetry, rolling around narratives of control and categorization. Rules that govern the surface of the work reach out to map the space of the viewer. They might slide down throats to be regurgitated as speech, or animate faces and limbs. Eleanor is disarmed by broken choreography.
