AF WEBB (Suffolk)
KEITH is a film that examines the events of Keith Eldred’s life. The film uses the estate as an adhoc film studio reimagining it as a variety of locations that have played used to events from Keith’s life. The piece comprises reenacted scenes, with Keith playing himself and inspired by his time as a pantomime director. From a goalkeeper in his younger days, a town planner in Hong Kong, to growing mushrooms on the estate. The film weaves between these episodes with the land oscillating between background and foreground, both character and archive in itself.

Emma Zadow & Anoushka Bonwick (North Norfolk)
Alice hasn’t been home for a while. Seven years in fact. But when her little sister, Lo, decides to try to take her own life, the journey from South London to Norfolk proves to be more than just a simple change of pace. Disney VHS tapes, Walkmans and shared memories fill the family home that Alice must confront what she left behind and what exactly brought her back. With the help of their friend Charlie, together, the three try to rekindle a family broken in the Norfolk wilderness. “When it’s this silent, it’s easy to hear voices.”
Fridge is a play about familial ties and the importance of supporting those closest to you. This is an online performance with magic realist writing at the heart of a story about a broken family that are brought back together in Norfolk, despite themselves and their past trauma.
