Performers and performances

A strand of work that’s parallel to documenting artists and makers is photographing actors, dancers and artists’ performance-based work in the Bristol area – some examples follow…

For Theatre Orchard Project – ‘I Peaseblossom, I Caliban’ on tour in North Somerset, 2011 and 2012.

There are lots more photos from this lovely tour over on The Theatre Orchard’s flickr site, here, here and here,

The Theatre Orchard‘s 2008 Festival of Eight project also included other performances in North Somerset, see the leaflet for more information and click on the names to visit the photographs on their flickr pages: ‘Nowhere‘ – Nailsea and Backwell; ‘The Whispering Post‘ – Portishead; ‘Bournville Becomes Elektra’ – Bournville; Weston-super-Mare ‘Meet on the Green‘ – Pill; ‘Changing Faces‘ – Clevedon; ‘Whispers in the Wind‘ – Puxton. These were followed in 2009 by ‘Still Voices‘ at Brockley and ‘Chime Child‘ in Puxton. And from the pre-digital photography era some other intriguing performances I’ve documented…
