Flying Solo with Ted
The first public performances of The Ted Bundy Project took place a couple of weeks ago at MC Amsterdam and Contact Manchester as part of both venues’ Flying Solo Festivals.
It was the culmination of what was—for me anyway—a long development process of around a year and a half (a year of which was under the Flying Solo International Commission). It was a deeply valuable time period where I ended up developing the piece largely through closed invite-only sharings.
But because of the kind of work it is, there’s a whole new making process emerging now that I’m performing the piece with an audience. It was always the intention with this piece, and I’m glad to be at this stage with it following the Flying Solo preview performances.
I’ve written a bit about The Ted Bundy Project and the development and thinking behind it here and here, so I won’t do into it too much now, but I’ll next be performing the piece at Mayfest in Bristol on 20th and 21st May.
In the meantime, here are some photos taken by Alex Brenner to whet your appetite:
