The latest play to come from Burjesta Theatre Company is a classic anti-war production of “All Quiet on the Western Front” which was written by Erich Maria Remarque. Erich was a conscript in the German Army and first saw the horrors of the war on the Western Front in 1917.
Here are just a few photographs taken from this weeks rehearsal, we will be following the Burjesta crew as they prepare for the opening night later in the year.
We have been working on a few ideas withBurjesta Theatre Group, who are in the very early stages of rehearsing their next production ” All Quiet on the Western Front” . Below are a few of the images taken from a portrait shoot that may make up some of the promotional material later in the year.
August 4 2014 marked 100 years since the start of The Great War. To mark the the moment when we went to war with Germany the country held an hour long vigil and lights were turned out and one solitary candle left on . “The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time“
My partner Angie, has over the past few weeks been sewing sandbags for an installation based on the trenches of the somme, and this formed the setting for a labyrinth, at 10 pm we extinguished all the candles leaving one solitary candle lit on the top of the trench.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
