History History History
Using film and live performance, History History History is a tender yet humorous show about the shifting nature of truth.
Deborah Pearson is a Herald Angel-winning artist who founded The Forest Fringe and is currently resident artist at Somerset House Studios.
In this performance, she explores the connect and disconnect between the personal and the political while projecting a Hungarian film that was meant to be premiered on the day the Budapest Uprising started. As she loosely translates this 1956 football comedy, it gives way to the stories of a writer who lost his name, an actor who lost his voice, and a country that lost its revolution.
‘Its potent blend of uplifting possibility and heartrending pathos make for an enchanting 90-minute show.’
