Theatre Within a Theatre

‘Theatre Within a Theatre’

First exhibited at the RWA as part of the Bristol Old Vic’s 250 Celebrations the Theatre With a Theatre installation consists of a to-scale model of the theatre, complete with stage, proscenium arch and seating. The picture here shows one of nine peepholes, designed to give glimpses of the stage and auditorium from various vantage points. On looking through them, viewers were rewarded with projections of recent shows, along with footage of actors warming up and of stage hands taking sets down at the end of a show’s run. Read an interview with Judith Aston here.
