Lindgren & Langlois: The Archive Paradox sets out a debate through a dramatised exchange of letters. It was put together by artist Ruth Beale and her research will be displayed within the stage set, ahead of a performance next week.
Think of it like a clever spin on the way we used to communicate. Novels like Evelina by Frances Burney used epistolary style to create a narrative. Through the exchange of letters the viewer, or audience member, in this case, has an omniscient view, which is obviously beneficial, and humorous at times.
It looks a little dark and gloomy, but don't you find you always write at the most unlikely times, in the less well-lit hours, and when alone? Maybe it's just me, but whilst the performance is clearly modified for the audiences benefit, it may resonate, somewhat, with the creative members of the audience, who also find their ideas, and their most witty responses (to a modern form of communication), in the darker hours.
Based on the correspondence between Henri Langlois and Ernest Lindgren, the performance between 7 and 8pm will undoubtedly have you hooked, as you eavesdrop on the conversations between the two.
