A(u)nti(e) Empire by AJ Taudevin
Summerhall Lab Sharing
Summerhall - The Old Lab
A(u)nti(e) wants to regale you with tales from the good old days of The British Empire only she is gradually bleeding to death. During her week long lab at Summerhall, award winning performer, writer and theatre maker Julia Taudevin will collaborate with costume, make up and special effects designer Sònia Gardes to create the character of A(u)nti(e) Empire and experiment with ways of disembowelling her. We will then attempt to incorporate our adventures in prosthetics and fake blood into a short comedy monologue. On the last day of the lab we will share what we have. Whatever happens, it will be gory.
