Some people dream in black and white but I've had dreams where I had to call for the projectionist because it was in the wrong aspect ratio. I have nightmares in video.
Some Film Museums I Have Known is a captivating adventure in performance and film. Fusing solo performance with a spectacular array of live audiovisual effects, the performance follows the story of Paula, a movie-obsessed loner with a bad film script and some big dreams. As Paula's aspirations unravel, the line between cinema and reality begins to blur, and we encounter an action hero trapped in a VHS nightmare, a rickety ghost train, the birth of cinema and a haunted film museum, hungry for souls.
Pilfering elements of horror and fantasy, Some Film Museums I Have Known is a darkly comic and fantastical journey into the heart of one woman's cinematic obsession. Allow yourself to be pulled into a world of dioramas, tiny cameras, VHS and internal monologues within an ever-evolving DIY set. Some Film Museums I Have Known is the latest offering from acclaimed theatre company Rhubarb Rhubarb, the team behind the wildly popular cinema remixes Wonka! and The Mad Max Remix.
