Art in Heaven
Wired Theatre, part of Brighton Fringe Festival May 2013
A student – disturbed by sexually explicit photographs and besotted by dead women’s paintings – experiences bizarre visions as she struggles with doubts. A working art room is transformed into a whirligig – peopled by celebrated artists- where past and present seem to collide, merge and dissolve, raising tantalising questions about art and life.
Inspired by the work of Gwen John, Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keefe, this site specific performance will be the ELEVENTH production by WIRED THEATRE for the Brighton Fringe. The company ethos is to present performances in non – theatrical spaces: previous devised works have been staged in private houses, a derelict basement, a café, a church and a park.
WIRED’s work challenges accepted theatrical practices and creates lively shows that are always thought-provoking and frequently darkly comic.
Visit the White room at Phoenix Brighton and see for yourself.
