Splinters exhibition review by Barcham

Love it.

“This exhibit does an admirable job of capturing that feeling of creative bravery and it’s hard not to walk away feeling a little inspired. There’s a chaotic yet polished feel to everything in the room. Posters painted on newspaper, rusted bikes forged out of steel, and a pair of the most gorgeously grotesque puppets…

Go check it out. I am recommending it, and placing whatever value my opinion has there. It’s fun, pretty, and reminded me of a time in my life where theatre seemed all powerful and could do anything. This is a wonderful thing because it’s worth remembering that theatre is all powerful and it can do anything.”

My research is developing a theoretical framework for using online archives of theatre and performance video to research audiences over long time periods. The Splinters archive is a case study for my research.
