‘We Do, We Undo, We Redo’: A Performance Event

  • 2019

‘We Do, We Undo, We Redo’ was a one-off performance at Hauser & Wirth Somerset in 2019 that responded to the exhibition ‘Unconscious Landscape. Works from the Ursula Hauser Collection’. The experimental play was developed over the course of two weeks during the Bristol Old Vic Youth Theatre Summer School by a group of young people aged 11 - 16 years old.

Led by director and choreographer Maisie Newman, the students explored themes of identity, gender and the work of Louise Bourgeois resulting in a unique showcase that incorporated colourful costumes, props, spoken word, music and dance. Since opening in 2015, Hauser & Wirth Somerset has run the annual theatre summer school in partnership with Bristol Old Vic Theatre, as part of the education programme.
