Penny Francis, In the Zone of Stones

In the Zone of Stones

This is a video I've been working on with Mischa Twitchin, who created the live performance based on text from "Ill Seen Ill Said" by Samuel Beckett. The piece is performed by Penny Francis, and I shot it with a couple of cameras without any cuts - ideally it should be possible to switch between the two different cameras, but for now I've put them side by side. The voice is Mischa, and the music is from the "Winterreise" accompaniment by Franz Schubert (played by Gerald Moore) and from the Chaconne (BWV 1004), arranged for left hand by Johannes Brahms (played by Paul Wittgenstein). The above photo of Penny is from when she was concentrating on trying different angles with the mirror to get the light to shine on her face. She's fantastic - she brought us ham sandwiches and mince pies and grapes.
