Tonight is my last performance at Platform One Gallery at Wandsworth Common station (at 6pm). I've had a good turnout every night, except Wednesday when no one turned up apart from a commuter and I scared him away oops. At least I got a chance to film.
So in case you were wondering what this is all about: Disembodied Voices is a theatrical performance without actors in the traditional sense. It features light and sound - a radio play by Harold Pinter and James Clarke. Each voice is represented by a different light. I designed the lighting and act as a kind of facilitator (although I feel like the executioner in some scenes). I drive the action forward by moving around the space and operating the lights. At Platform One, the audience stood in the theatrical space i.e. on stage and became part of the performance - unwittingly they became the actors.

Solo show at Platform One Gallery !
The dates of my first solo show have been confirmed - it opens on Tuesday 27 October and runs until Saturday, 31 October. It will take the form of scheduled evening performances.
I met Merlin Fulcher, who runs Platform One Gallery in the former waiting room at Wandsworth Common rail station, when he saw my Voices performance at the final degree show in Camberwell. He agreed to host it at Platform One which I think is perfect for my performance. How exciting!
