Performances – Character pieces
A self-contained performance based on the ‘exhibition’ and explanation of a rare beast.
The second video here is a documentary.
As well as the ‘show’ it explains the creation process and the development of character and the dramaturgy & texts.

Video documentary about the creation of the character and performance.

A song and a rose or two …
An Old Baritone.
Performance commissioned by the 1800’s Festival in Saludecio.

… long hands in finger-less gloves, slippers, embroidered housecoat – pocket watch and chain – champagne bottle in one pocket & sheet music in the other.
A very odd performance:
executing melodramatic arias with full facial and physical expression but with no vocal noise and in slow motion – accompanied by soundtrack of Edwardian musical boxes.
