Photographer's Note

"They advance in the shadow, long white figures, on stilts, being draped by clothes, who seem to wait for any meeting.

Appearing in the course of a tree, at the corner of a street, provided with the only language of silences and slow gestures ; they begin strange secret meetings, they approach, go away and finally invite us to follow them..."

A shot from my coverage of the promenade performance of Compagnie de Quidams in the city of Derby in the English East Midlands this September. This one reminds me of the use of light by the famous Derby painter Joseph Wright although not in the same colour frame - I was reminded of him by a recent post from Agnieszka Traczewska here on TE.

This performer found an uplight beneath a tree near their finale performance piece which involved these costumes inflating - releasing a large white balloon and initiating a firework display from the new pedestrian bridge built across the River Derwent nearby.
