Shooting with Light

It is 1933 and a young German refugee flees to Paris, reinventing herself as Gerda Taro. Discovering the wonder of photography, she falls in love with a fellow refugee who teaches her, ‘if your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough’. Together they venture to the Spanish Civil War and capture the tyranny of fascism. As pioneers of frontline photo journalism, he would go on to receive international recognition as the iconic war photographer Robert Capa – she would be forgotten.

Using innovative staging, physicality and multimedia, internationally renowned company Idle Motion piece together the life of an exceptional woman, glimpsed through the lost photographs she risked her life to take.

Jack and Jill and The Red Post Box @ The Courtyard Theatre 10/09/2015

Jack and Jill and the Red Postbox is a sensitive, humorous and challenging performance which encourages us to think about how we live and work alongside those in our communities who have a diagnosis of dementia. Using nursery rhymes, live and recorded sound/music and images, the performance invites us to follow the journeys of Jack and Jill and those who live among them, as they encounter considerable changes in their everyday life events.

This fictionalised performance has been inspired by 89 anonymous transcripts, collected in a research project in Northumberland: the ‘Risk and Resilience: living with dementia’ project. The stories are based upon ‘common’ themes which help us to explore questions involving changes in identity, sense of place and roles within community and society.

ticket price- Adult £14, concession £13
