one hour

one hour is a piece of contemporary performance exploring distance, time and loneliness. four performers appear ghost-like, each of them wearing an eyehole-less white sheet. they struggle through one hour of simple tasks such as opening a big, red present, describing a family portrait, singing a karaoke ballad, setting up a microphone and smashing a watermelon with a shovel.


this piece was directed by gudrun soley sigurdardottir and was first performed in the chandler theatre in may 2015.

performed and devised by anya bowcott, dan cox, emily picardi and marta bartczak.
