Collected Works, published by Oberon Books
£12.50 On Sale
This is my 'collected works for performance' - 3 significant pieces for performance by me and collaborators made over the past 3-4 years.
The full blurb and info is below, but briefly, the book contains a new introduction written by me, discussing my practice, and at the heart of that a definition of politics and community which infuses all my work. Then follows are 3 texts, each with an introduction written by me, plus collaborators Alexander Kelly (Third Angel), Sean Arnold and Keir Cooper. Then each text has its own 'spin' - a way of presenting it that looks again at the form to express the content of the work. A Conversation with My Father is presented annotated by my Dad, Songs for Breaking Britain with detailed accounts from the two band members I made it with, and Equations for a Moving Body (which tells how the story of my completing the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile cycle and marathon of the Outlaw triathlon was the combination of all of those who were with me to the start line) is followed by responses and extracts from correspondence from each of the people I name in the show.
Available elsewhere online for £14.99, but only £12.50 plus p&p from here, and if you come in person to see the show, and I have copies with me, £10. If you fall under 'everywhere else' and there's a wild discrepancy in postage costs, I'll refund a relevant amount.
I post orders out every Monday, usually, sometimes sooner, but please allow a little time for me to process your order.If you have accessibility requirements and would like a PDF of the text, please don't hesitate to contact me, via this email address. Thanks!
This is the first collected works of Hannah Nicklin: a writer, game designer and performance maker experimenting with social engaged practices and storytelling in contemporary performance. This collection brings together three pieces made in collaboration with a series of other artists, musicians and people in the street, from 2012 to 2015. There is an introduction and commentary on each performance text, plus additional materials provided by collaborators, expanding and reflecting on the work, and how each piece was made.
A Conversation With My Father:
“[…] as topical in these days of police ‘kettling’ and undercover provocateurs as it might be timeless in its questioning of the basis of a functioning civic society.” – Wayne Burrows
Songs for Breaking Britain:
“[…] defies the media’s lucrative monopoly on our narratives […] funny, compassionate, heart-breaking and very, very loud.” – Catherine Love on Songs for Breaking Britain.
Equations For A Moving Body:
“So interesting, engaging and relatable. Beautifully human.” – Audience feedback, on Equations for a Moving Body, in Newcastle.
