Documenting Performance

Filming and editing performers is a rewarding creative exercise: a real challenge to retain the energy and feel of a live performance without ignoring the film format. Recent work includes documenting Chisenhale Dance Space Homemade Bursary Award Winners, filming Othon & Tomasini's concert at Chelsea Theatre, featuring Marc Almond, and Frank Wurzinger's Confetti Maker trailer.



Videos in the player are Changing Spaces Theatre's trailer for Museum of Love, Will Dickie's bursary winning dance performance From Hampton. Memories of Suburbia, Marc Almond's performance of Othon's, Ali & Baba's storming rendition of the Sand Dance at Duckie, and Frankalele @ Madamme Jojo's by Frank Wurzinger, the most endearingly funny clown in London's cabaret circuit today.
