The Margate Exodus is in the news today on a website, ArtDaily.Com, of all things, The report writes:
“The Margate Exodus will transform the seaside town of Margate into a contemporary setting for an epic film in which local people play all of the parts.”
“The project”, it continues, “is a dynamic fusion of internationally acclaimed artists and undiscovered local talent – combining music, theatre, site-specific contemporary art and film. A spectacular day of live events on 30th of September will include performances and the final display of Anthony Gormely's Waste Man.
Plagues of lice, locusts, frogs and flies, a 25-metre high sacrificial sculpture and a cast of thousands will dramatically transform the south coast town of Margate into a colourful and contemporary setting for an epic film inspired by the Old Testament Book of Exodus, in which the town’s residents will play all of the parts.
It is anticipated that a great many people from Thanet will take an active part in this ambitious project and that Exodus Day will attract a substantial audience from Kent, London and beyond.
Sounds like Margate then!!!
