Background People

Bootleg Social, Blackpool, FY1 3AQ
Tue 19th June 2018

A series of short absurdist stories exploring the Paradox of Choice and the line between commitment and obligation through spoken word, theatre, new writing and live art.

Created by Camden Roundhouse Resident Artist Martha Pailing, the show is a result of collecting photos from everywhere and anywhere, framing the 'accidental' background characters, and assigning these figures lifestyle choices and traits of real life people the artist meets. As a result, the show introduces characters that represent a whole community of background people.

Martha is from Blackpool - her work has been presented at Peopling the Palace Festival, Hackney Showroom, the Royal Court and the Roundhouse.
