Pests Presents: Susan Kempster

  • St Michaels Church St Michaels Church Bournemouth (map)

Pests are bringing the brilliant Susan Kempster to Bournemouth to perform Eye. Eye is a look at self through the lens of a camera, not a mirror. It is a close-up, a detail, an intimate diving into private worlds we sometimes wish no one could see. Using an old video camera and a projector, we are invited to observe the micro dance of facial expressions. A solo show with an invited guest, and an invitation to the audience to participate in a sequence of “face dances”, Eye sits on the edge between theatre, dance, live film and performance.

Susan Kempster is a dance artist and performance maker, originally from Australia, living more than two decades in Spain, and now based in London. She is an award-winning choreographer, who balances her work between teaching, creating and performing. Her solo performances Eye, and the earlier My Own Private Movie, have been born out of a desire for direct and personal connection with the audience.

Susan will be performing Eye on April 12th, doors open at 7PM with the show starting at 7:30PM. Tickets are £5 full price and £3 concession and can be bought by following the link below.
