The dark world of the Motor Show

On Saturday 19th May 2012 on a cold evening I made my way down to the St. James Place Development Site for the Motor Show at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival directed by Frauke Requardt and David Rosenberg. The sound score was composed by Ben and Max Ringham. This was going to be a night of dancing and cars that Norwich had never seen before.

We were all provided with headphones when we arrived at the site so that we could be taken to the intimate interiors of the cars that we could see approaching from the distance. A car arrives in a hidden wasteland in which a young couple are completely oblivious to anything other then themselves while a dark world turns around them. With the sound of Hells Bells we were taken on a journey to an uneasy place of isolation with the city skyline as a backdrop.

This was a brilliant production from Requardt and Rosenberg and has to be one of my highlights of this year's Norfolk and Norfolk Festival. It was an unique experience to attend an event at somewhere like the St. James Place Development Site. Great dancing and driving from the cast which made for a very interesting and enjoyable night.
