THE FICTITIOUS TRUTHS OF TEDDINGTON LIBRARY

1/11

 

DKHP was commissioned by Richmond Arts Services, and the Borough of Richmond Upon Thames to create a performance project that engaged communities in Teddington Library.

 

This formed part of a 2 year Dance In Libraries Project, animating Richond's libraries with four commissions, including Straybird, Seke Chimutengwende, and Frauke Requhart

We worked in and out of the library environment over 2 months, researching local history and imagining the past and the future going far beyond that which we can even imagine.

 

We culminated in a 3 day performance event in which audiences could follow a specially designed map of the space and installation; watch and create designs made with a Victorian harmonograph; see the spirit of local hero Noel Coward come to life; perform as the live exhibit of exhumed TEDDINGTON MAN; or read stories to the bear that had once roamed the local forests

 

Performed by:

Charlotte Darbyshire

Joan Cleville

Harmonograph created by Ben Ash and Tony WAdham

Bear created by Rachel Lopez de la Nieta
