[Live] Art Club - Richard DeDomenici
The Redux Project
Friday 15 & Saturday 16 May
Commissioned by Norwich Arts Centre this summer a new kind of blockbuster is hitting Norwich, and it stars you.
As part of his on-going Redux Project, DeDomenici collaborates with local volunteers to recreate sections of popular films, shot for shot, in the original locations, with budget props, costumes and effects - which he edits and premieres in front of an audience within a few days.
For Norwich DeDomenici plans to remake scenes from the forthcoming Hollywood superhero blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, and an old episode of the BBC's 'Allo 'Allo!, both filmed locally.
A spectacularly lo-fi celebration and subversion of cinema, The Redux Project is also a singular way of participating in movie history.
Performance runs c. 60 mins (no interval)
