Michael Pinchbeck: And the curtain falls


Michael Pinchbeck remembered plays The Falcon Players had performed at Loughborough University. His sound installation bought back to life old stage directions (the words that were never meant to be heard) and set them alongside personal reflections from members of the group. The installation at the Cope Auditorium sat somewhere between the amateur and the academic, onstage and offstage.

And The Curtain Falls marked the end of a series of projects stemming from an interest in amateur dramatics as both a mode of performance and a meditation on memory, nostalgia and loss.

Michael Pinchbeck is a writer, live artist and performance maker based in Nottingham. He co-founded Metro-Boulot-Dodo in 1997 after studying Theatre and Creative Writing at Lancaster University. He left the company in 2004 to embark on a five-year live art project The Long and Winding Road.
