Performance Re-enactment Society

Darkside Live Art event, Arnolfini, Bristol
December 2007

Developed with Tom Marshman, in collaboration with live art archivists Bex Carrington and Julian Warren, costume designer Pam Tait and director/research fellow Paul Clarke.

Tom Marshman and Clare Thornton had a mission - to breathe new life into performance archives through an evening of re-enactment and ‘tableau vivant’. They invited ticket rippers, ushers, back-stage crew, box office staff - all those who help to create the magic on stage (and that included the audience)! 
Saluting the unsung heroes
Stepping out from the darkness 
Joining in the fun of recreating a memorable performance moment and recreating it for a photograph. These images were collated and are now held in the Arnolfini Archive.
