Re-imagine Camden with Re-Stage
To celebrate Camden’s 50th anniversary, local artist Dmitri Galitzine invites visitors to rediscover 50 years of theatre from a contemporary perspective.
His interactive exhibition, Re:Stage, which opened this week (1 June), explores the influence of radical theatre in Camden, which began in the late 60s.
Set on a circular revolving stage, visitors are encouraged to get involved in the retelling of stories from the past up to the present day. Visitors will become the actors as they read aloud and reinterpret scenes, with props and costumes helping to recreate the atmosphere. By also sharing their own memories and personal stories, a new theatre performance will be created on-the-spot.
Re:Stage is now on every day at Swiss Cottage Gallery until 21 July, with free admission and no need to book in advance.
This project is supported by Unfinished Histories and is accompanied by a range of free performances throughout June and July, all exploring the links between past, present and future. Upcoming events include A Poetry Reading by Bernard Kops, performances by RADA TheatreVision Collective, and a performance/lecture by Cindy Oswin.
