Est-ce Que Tu Dors?

  • Chapelle Des Penitents Blancs, Avignon, France, 2012
A collaboration between Simon McBurney of Complicite and John & Katya Berger for the International Festival d’Avignon in 2012. The performance was a rehearsed reading by John & Katya of their book ‘Lying Down to Sleep’ – a study of Mantegna’s frescoes for the bridal chamber of the ducal palace in Mantua, Italy.
We used a combination of live video, images from the chamber and animation, projected as recreation frescoes onto the bare stone walls of the chapel venue.
