We’ve just added Deborah Hay’s Solo Performance Commissioning Project DVD to the library collections:
turn your f^*king head
a documentary by Beck Edmunds
Filmmaker Becky Edmunds followed the 10-day intensive process, resulting in a feature-length documentary,Turn Your F^*king Head. It takes its title from Deborah’s frequent reminder to the artists to refresh their awareness. The film shows Hay and the 20 artists as they engage with the process of creating adaptations of Hay’s new score, Dynamic. It is a document of her process as she continues to redefine what performance is and how performers perform.
The DVD resource includes the documentary, and three featurettes about particular aspects of the project. It is accompanied by a booklet with two specially commissioned essays by Susan Foster, Bojana Bauer and Myrto Katsiki, and a personal letter from Deborah Hay to Gill Clarke.
