Event description

Description

William Blake(1757-1827) has messages for us that are more vital than ever.

Albion, Awake! explores his life and visionary poetry, prose and artwork, using Michael Chekhov’s radical techniques for the actor. Blake was a revolutionary artistic genius. Dismissed as a madman by some, Blake is now internationally celebrated as an outstanding artist. His limitless imagination explodes prejudices of race, gender, identity and what it means to be human.

Michael Chekhov(1891-1955) was a visionary actor, director and theatre practitioner from the famous Moscow Art Theatre. Chekhov’s techniques, strongly rooted in the power of imagination and archetypes, lend themselves naturally to Blake’s work, enabling the actor to establish a unique relationship between the mind and body in performance.

Albion, Awake! combines Blake’s own words with the mesmerising power of his “Illuminations”- the exquisite hand-coloured engravings that form an essential part of his major published works- to offer a layered, multimedia experience of psychophysical theatre and a living embodiment of Blake’s ‘Visionary Forms Dramatic’.
