Today I started my weekend job photographing the dress rehearsal of 9 – a new production at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.
Created exclusively as part of Transform, this very special collaboration with Chris Goode & Company features nine ordinary people taking an extraordinary leap into the unknown.
The process began with an open call-out for people from Yorkshire with little or no experience of performing. Three months later, at the end of a richly challenging collaborative process, those nine intrepid individuals will step out onto the Courtyard stage to perform the diverse and beautiful solo portraits they’ve made.
Developed in conjunction with an amazing team of directors, designers and other theatre artists, led by award-winning maker Chris Goode, 9 invites you to witness the culmination of nine remarkable journeys in a single unforgettable show.
Here are a selection of images from the dress:
