Summerhill TV & One Week (U)
Dir. Buster Keaton, USA, 1920
A mix of video, humour and experiment, this performance is led by children from Summerhill Junior School. Working with artists and performers Kim Noble and Stuart Silver, the children have developed this work which explores television, its methods and genres in a playful representation of live studio TV. Kim and Stuart also perform as (nobleandsilver) and their trademark style of comedy, slapstick and video trickery has informed much of the work in this collaboration.
The performance will be followed by One Week, a movie ahead of its time with great gags, slapstick and special effects. The screening will be accompanied by live piano music by John Sweeney. Presented by Bristol Silents - www.bristolsilents.org.uk
