PERFORMANCE – The Action of the Play

19/05/2010 / 18:00 - 20:00

In this performance displacement is stretched further as Castlefield Gallery is turned over to the theatre for this special double evening event.

Short excerpts from Luigi Pirandello’s satirical play Six Characters in Search of an Author are spliced together and performed in a 20 minute loop by actors from the Manchester School of Theatre. Each excerpt is repeatedly, yet differently, brought to life as the actors perform multiple roles for the gallery audience. Come and go as you wish.

Out of Time (The Light of Day / The Action of the Play)

16/04/2010 / 13:00 - 18:00

Castlefield Gallery is pleased to present a solo show of new work by David Osbaldeston, Out of Time (The Light of Day / The Action of the Play). Through manipulated images of news photography and a print series of interpretive book cover designs – wrapping the gallery exterior – from Luigi Pirandello’s[1] celebrated play Six Characters in Search of an Author[2], the exhibition will explore relationships between the gallery and theatre staging, displacement, reality, illusion and social discord.
