The Lisa and John SlideshowEvents
About The Event
Belfast Exposed are delighted to bring this unique theatre performance created by documentary photographer David Moore to Belfast. Join us at the MAC on Thursday 10th May for this special one-off live performance of 'The Lisa and John Slideshow', as part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival.
‘The Lisa and John Slideshow’ tells the story of a now divorced couple interacting with an archive of photographs taken by David Moore, documenting their family between 1987 and 1988. Accompanying the exhibition entitled ‘Lisa and John’ at Belfast Exposed, this deeply moving and powerful performance sheds light upon the ways in which photographs and in particular family archives both hold and question the nature of memories, stories and emotions. Using actors to perform, the verbatim script has been created using transcripts of conversations with Lisa and John as they select and speak about their own selection of images from Moore’s archive.
