Patricia Osses at Beaconsfield

by E-Slant Team
John’s House is a digital body of work in progress: a response to the spaces within and beyond the former home of the playwright John Osborne. In solo performance, photography and in collaboration with improvising singer Phil Minton, Osses re-awakens the spirits of place.

Artists Links is a joint British Council and Arts Council England programme. www.artistlinks.org.uk [more]
