I am not a Village (performance)

I am currently directing and performing in a “live-dance-film” I have written I am not a Village.

I am not a Village was initially a promenade piece I did in conjunction with an installation at Battersea Arts centre and later repeated for the Toihaus Theatre in Salsburg, for which I wrote I am not a Village poem. I performed the promenade in the Soca valley in Slovenia and on Syros in Greece. I have also performed this as an interactive theatrical performance in a variety of venues with a projected backdrop of stills from the movie: Park road Pilot, Red shoe space, The Others.
