cleanliness is next to godliness, but dirtiness is next to heaven     Dulwich Leisure Centre, London, 2001

 

I was interested in matters of hygiene and the desires of the everyday in public places. The performance was co-devised in a swimming pool/bath house with four performers - Nicole Robinson, Adura Onashile, Sef Townsend and Jenni Potter.

 

A site-specific promenade piece, the audience were led to view the diverse hubs, such as the men’s toilets in the basement, the abandoned bathtubs and the 2nd class poolside changing cubicles, and asked to reconsider accepted and inappropriate physical activities, all accompanied by a disconcerting and compelling sound design by Joseph Hyde.
