Tacita Dean’s 16mm film Event for a Stage (2015) will be presented over four days at Falmouth University’s performing arts centre, AMATA.

Originally commissioned as a live performance over four consecutive nights for the 2014 Sydney Biennial, it was Dean’s first foray into theatre and her first experience of working with an actor. What resulted was a fierce interplay between the artist and the actor Stephen Dillane as they struggled to understand and accommodate each other’s disciplines. Dean filmed each of the four nights as part of the performance and reworked the footage to explore the interplay between reality and fiction that theatre is built around.

This exhibition has been organised in partnership with Falmouth University’s Academy of Music and Theatre Arts (AMATA).
