I THOUGHT THERE WAS ONE JESUS... BUT THERE ARE LOADS.




3 channel, HD video, 16 min, 2016
‘I thought there was one Jesus…but there are loads’ is a three channel installation that follows three actors as they narrate a scripted version of themselves.

The monologues are woven together from a casting session and a series of questions that probed the personal narratives, techniques and cultural influences they use to reach an emotive state of ‘hysteria’.

Each one has a different approach, from evoking past personal memories to imagining future scenarios, from engaging physically with their body to interrogating the morality of drawing upon certain memories or projections. Through this process of internal re-telling, 'the uncanny' is evoked through a performance and re-performance of ones self.

Furthermore, as each actor finds herself alone on the theatre stage, with the empty stands only occupied by a single figure with a camera, the work sets up the question as to whether this performance is a rehearsal for a performance to come, a performance for the film itself, or a genuine encounter with the actor.

Written and directed by Angelica Bollettinari and Henry Bradley.
