A Curious Double Bill
Smoking Gun by Leslie Hill
Descended from both American cowboys and Indians, Hill explores a heritage of villainy and heroism. She draws on current genetic research which links us all to a shared ancestry, prompting notions of us and them, victims and perpetrators, of migration and survival.
Family Hold Back by Helen Paris
A highly visual, darkly comic performance airing the perversities and politeness of the English dinner table, where noone mentions politics and everyone knows that Trotterscliffe is pronounced Trosley. Over three courses, codes of Englishnes are exposed as weapons of mass destruction. Helen Paris stains, soils and sullies the preserves of the white middle-class, breaking down cultural barriers and politeness from the inside.
