Aren't you one of the heads from The Heads?
I've featured in quite a few Blind Summit shows. There are actually around 20 replicas of me - most are in storage but we keep a few to hand so that Mark and our Associate Artists can take them to workshops for puppet-play.
I see. So how did you first come about?
I was commissioned by ROH2 in 2007 for their Firsts Festival, and a 20 minute sketch called Real Man, inspired by Jack London's Call of the Wild.
I'm sure I've seen you in a dark corner of the BAC...
You're right. I was used in Odde Angel, a 4 minute side-show scene in Punchdrunk's Masque of the Red Death (2008) where a labyrinth of rooms featured work inspired by Edgar Allen Poe stories.
The early versions of The Table had a 20-minute section of me, my replicas and hands flying across three frames to Lightning by Philip Glass. That was then developed into a full hour-long show, The Heads, that premiered at the Soho as part of London Mime Festival 2013.
