The World Premiere of ....

Theda by Georgina Starr

A chance meeting with an eccentric octogenarian film fan introduced Starr to the world of silent screen legend Theda Bara. Once the biggest silent movie star in the world, Bara appeared in over forty films, of which only two still exist today. Through extensive research into the art of Bara and other neglected silent stars, Starr has reconstructed key scenes from the lost films, with both herself and a retired film star taking on the role of ‘Theda’. The work will look at the vicarious nature of the cinematic experience and explore the silent film form through image and live sound. Experimenting with performance styles and narrative techniques Starr considers the movie screen as a mirror and how we use film fiction to explore and escape our own identity.

With live music accompaniment from The London Improvisers Orchestra more info
