Shooting With Light @ New Diorama Theatre / until 24th October 2015


Doors: 19:30

@ New Diorama Theatre, 15 – 16 Triton Street, London NW1 3BF

Tickets: £14:50 book online

Following a successful tour of the UK and an acclaimed five-city tour of China, contemporary theatre trailblazers Idle Motion will this week bring Shooting With Light back to New Diorama Theatre for one week only.

In a world where two and a half billion photos are taken every day, sometimes the most remarkable stories are found behind the camera.

In 1933 a young Jewish German refugee fled to Paris where she became immersed in the world of photography and embarked on a tumultuous relationship with legendary photographer Robert Capa.

These passions led her to become the first ever female photojournalist to die shooting a warzone from the front line, throwing herself headfirst into the horrors of the Spanish Civil War.

While Gerda Taro’s photos remain some of the most beautifully candid illustrations of the grotesque absurdities of armed conflict, her byline – though iconic in some quarters – remains largely unknown.

Doors: Thursday–Sunday 12–6pm

@ Zabludowicz Collection, 176 Prince of Wales Road, London NW5 3PT

Free entry

Exploring themes of male identity and uncertainty. Through the symbolic use of bodies, objects and gestures he navigates the idiosyncrasies that permeate the ‘lifestyles’ of today. Employing images of the absurd Richardson’s approach disarms through dark humour and the staging of infantile wonder.

The exhibition HEADBONE features a new single-channel video has as its central component, extending both the technical ambition and emotional complexity of his practice. Using digital photography Richardson creates 3D models of his own body, and the bodies of others, which are then animated with movement and sound. Bound in everyday detritus the figures appear frozen and mute, yet full of psychological resonance. The video is presented alongside sculptural objects linked to its production, and displayed in an installation constructed from foil-covered board that requires viewers to weave a route through to a final ‘chamber’.
