Format: Paperback
'The Gig' is a journey in photography with a travelling group of street theatre artists - a series of striking images depicting the troupe of 'Strangelings' themselves and their remarkable costumes, but also the audience reaction from ordinary people around Britain - including scenes in Liverpool and at the opening of the Millennium Bridge. The author is Italian but he's clearly gone native - what he captures in his photographs is something very British. It's great fun - simply but attractively packaged - and as a document of a time and a place, and of people with a real and engaging passion - it's like no other book I've ever read. Recommended for anyone with an interest in photography, or in the future of theatre and the arts.
