Let me count the ways…
Celebrating the epic within the everyday, Curious invited residents of Stratford-Upon-Avon, people who live their daily lives alongside the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and its seasonal procession of heroes and grand tragedies, to talk to them about what in their lives might move them to write a sonnet. From scores of encounters, 14 portraits were created in collaboration with acclaimed photographer Hugo Glendinning in places meaningful to the participants such as the seemingly ordinary location of an extraordinary first kiss.
A Curious work, commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company and supported by the Hosking Houses Trust. Photographs by Hugo Glendinning, view all 14 portraits. Soundscore by Graeme Miller. Produced by Artsadmin.
