Cure or be Cured

Roy Hanney (Producer), Eilís Phillips

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance

Abstract

Working under the nom de plume of Dr. Lighthouse (aka Roy Hanney) the researcher devised a video performance in collaboration with Writer Eilis Philips which was projected onto the walls of Southsea Castle as part of the event. The researcher also devised other audio visual material for exhibition at the event.

Staged as part of Portsmouth Darkfest 2018, ‘Cure or be Cured’ was an evening of spoken word, film projections and immersive theatre all inspired by the iconic Plague Doctors who tried to cure sufferers of the Black Death in the 14th Century. The Front Room presented a programme of ‘healing rituals’ in the atmospheric setting of Southsea Castle. The audience were invited to find sanctuary in the courtyard from the ‘plague’ and all other horrors that lurk in the night.
