“There are few more compelling presences than that of Melanie Wilson” The Guardian
A sortie into a curious cityscape of the future past, featuring Iris Brunette: part time travelling refugee, part compassionate voyeur. A warmly mournful and disarmingly engaging piece, inspired by the film 'La Jeteé' by Chris Marker.
Commissioned and developed at BAC.
Originally funded by Arts Council England.
