FROM THE PRESS RELEASE BY ACT GROUP

From the much lauded March 27th GHOST BUS SHOW and UK short films premiere at Nottingham and its collaboration between celebrated visual artist Roberto Alborghetti, ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) and Bartons plc, an impressive international abstract art gallery is travelling along the road bridging England to Italy, via an old rusty bus.

An exciting multi art, culture and tourism show that will be starting on Wednesday 21 October with the ACT Tuscany GRAND TOUR and finishing on Wednesday 28 October.

In the middle weekend of the tour, 24 & 25 October, at Mount Amiata, where the extinct volcano resides over this stunning landscape, there is taking place, at the medieval hill topped town of Piancastagnaio, a wonderful mayorial reception and tour offered to the people of Beeston, Nottingham, East Midlands and from all over England, with descending visitors from Italy and all over Europe.

On Sunday 25 October evening, in collaboration with OSA Onlus and Nicola Cirocco, the Comune of Piancastagnaio, his Major Luigi Vagaggini, the highlight of the tour will be the ITALIAN short film premiere of THE GHOST BUS followed by an explosive ART FASHION & DESIGN SHOW by Roberto Alborghetti and international couturier Mitrani Yarden, fashion designer and artist. For HOPES project they have created a very special dress, the so called “VOLCANO DRESS” – an haut couture creation – working on one of the original images that are part of THE GHOST BUS short film.

 

The Ghost Bus project is really travelling around the www collecting admirers along the way…  So, hop on board and enjoy the ride!

THE GHOST BUS / FEEDBACKS: “AN EXTREMELY EXCITING PROJECT” (MELVYN RAWLINSON, ACTOR, DESIGNER, DIRECTOR, PUPPETEER)

b DSCN0006 (640x480)  For what it’s worth, may I be so presumptuous to share a thought. I think the Ghost Bus Project is about Time.

So often it is time which robs us of our memories and our faculties: to be able to function in the same way we once were able to. The archive film gives us back those memories, a glimpse of the past. But the bus itself has also travelled through time, and like its passengers has also been robbed of many of its faculties. Yet time is also our travelling companion as it takes us on a journey to discover what lies beneath the outer surfaces. Time is stripping back the layers to reveal other landscapes in a different dimension. It’s as if time is moving in two directions and where the two cross is where you find the Ghost Bus. It’s a curious contradiction. In this instance, the bus is the zeitgeist, the receptacle from which these images and emotions spring.

b DSCN0014 (640x480)

There were all sort of secondary thoughts about Roberto’s images not being abstract because they’re not abstracted from anything; they are an honest representation of what already exists, if only we take the time to look – so if anything they are extracted images. I guess in some ways we’re already aware of archive footage and even Roberto’s images, however beautiful even mesmerising, seem familiar. Yet the bus is different. To my mind the bus is the star and deserves to be at the heart of the installation and I’m not sure the films and the music should be experienced as separate fragments but more as facets of the central jewel – The Ghost Bus. I think it’s an extremely exciting project and I envy you all!

As a lone film maker – and a part-time one at that – and as a performer I really appreciate the hard work which was needed to get to the point of last Friday’s presentation. It was a brilliant evening and full of images and emotions which will stay with me for a long time. There’s so much potential there I’m sure you’re going to have great fun exploring the project even further. And I don’t need to tell you of the amazing resource you have right in the heart of Beeston and I raise my hat to you and your small team who achieve so much.
