Archives: The Boneyard

I shot the photographs last august for my brother’s partner. She was running workshops surrounding the improvised word with various performers around London. The idea was to explore how the improvised word can be used to influence the development of a narrative through various exercises.

The two days I spent with the group documenting the process was an incredible experience. Each performer had their own approach to physical performance; musicians, dancers, actors, directors…the harmony of performance styles was beautiful to watch. Each session began with a warm up exercise designed to breakdown boundaries and barriers to unlock a kind of raw performance uncontrolled by inhibition. Ironically it requires a great deal of control to become theatrically feral.
