The Story So Far
In March 2009, the Authentic Artist Collective met periodically to devise WOLF. In 2010 Arts Council England funding was offered via the Escalator East to Edinburgh programme, with further funding support from Mid-Suffolk and Babergh District Councils, making it possible for the company to perform at Pulse and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals 2010.
The Collective has now expanded to include other Authentic Artists. The most recent project is 'Tender Age'.
Members of the Authentic Artist Collective span seven decades, from established professionals in their 60s and 70s to emerging artists still in their teens. Kath Burlinson’s Authentic Artist workshops provide a pool from which members of the Collective are drawn. Authentic Artist workshops have been running since 2007 and attract artists from many disciplines, enticed by the transformational reputation of the work.
Kath Burlinson is in turn inspired by her teachers and mentors, US artists Paul Oertel and Nancy Spanier, now based in France.
In the past twenty years Kath has also worked with other influential performance teachers including Jonathan Kay, Guy Dartnell, Cal McCrystal and the late Scott Kelman.
