She saw my Underdrome pictures taken at the Roundhouse last year and wanted me to do the still shots at the technical rehearsals earlier this week in St Albans.
The show performed by Amy Bell, Jennifer Essex, David Lloyd was choreographed by Adrienne Hart herself. She was inspired to put together this piece after reading a book by neurologist Oliver Sacks titled The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, which is about a man with visual agnosia.
"The play is set in a psychiatric hospital and delves into the mind of a resident patient. The piece explores how a neurological disease can alter your sense of self and relationship to the world and people around you."
Music was composed by Peter Broderick and it features video projection by film maker Alice Powell.
An excerpt of Falling From Trees will be shown at the Lilian Baylis Studio on 13th March 2010 as part of Sadler's Wells Big Dance Open Platform. For more information click here
It's an exciting time for Adrienne, finally being able to show this piece to the public after a long hard work at putting all the strings together. There's an interest across the UK and Europe to show this production, so keep a look out...
As the lighting was constant I was able to shoot at the same spec throughout. I would have preferred to shoot at 1/640 shutter speed to but that would mean cranking up the ISO to around 6400. Anyone care enough to buy me a D3s?
