Bramwell, Murray Ross
MetadataShow full item record
The rehearsal room for Parallelo’s "Distance Project" has not been in a building but on a website. For several years the company - previously known as Doppio Teatro - has, through the auspices of artistic director, Teresa Crea, brought together a diaspora of artists from Teatro Kismet in Italy, Theatre Athenor in France and the Nottingham Playhouse in the UK. Crea and video artist, Laurent Dupont co-ordinated contributions from nine other artists to bring together a composite of image, sound and text all relating to the themes and paradoxes of distance, with its associated implications of exile and migration. Now this project has been converted into a fifty minute performance work which combines the work of Crea and Dupont with design by James Coulter, sound by Robin Rimbaud (aka Scanner) broadcast sound from Jason Sweeney, digital image creation by Lynne Sanderson, DJ Michael Goodfellow, photography by Peter Heidrich and four live performers.
