A student – disturbed by sexually explicit photographs and besotted by dead women's paintings – experiences bizarre visions as she struggles with doubts. A working art room is transformed into a whirligig – peopled by celebrated artists – where past and present seem to collide, merge and dissolve, raising tantalising questions about art and life.
Inspired by the work of Gwen John, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keefe and Jeff Koons, this site specific performance will be the ELEVENTH production by WIRED THEATRE for the Brighton Fringe. The company ethos is to present performances in non-theatrical spaces: previous devised works have been presented in private houses, a derelict basement, a café, a church and a park. They include: Gone But not Forgotten (2012), After Money (2011), Above Below (2010), Like Caged Birds (2008), Look Now (2007), Miraculous Mummers' double bill (2007), and a trilogy (2003/4/5) in a house in Hove.
WIRED's work challenges accepted theatrical practices and creates lively shows that are always thought-provoking and often darkly comic.
Come visit the White Room at Phoenix Brighton and see for yourself.
