Hayley Doherty / Another Way of Telling


You can see HAYLEY DOHERTY in a limited run of Michael Pinchbeck’s ANOTHER WAY OF TELLING at Harrogate’s Mercer Art Gallery on the 26th and 27th of September as part of Harrogate Theatre Seed Commission.

To mark the 40th anniversary of Another Way of Telling (1982) by writer, John Berger, and photographer, Jean Mohr, Michael Pinchbeck explores the relationship between performance and photography, photographer and photographed, image and text. Taking the form of an immersive slideshow, the piece asks how each time we perform is different to each time we take a photograph.

Guiding the audience through the pages of the book using a live camera, a medical trolley loaded with mementos, Berger’s words and Mohr’s images, a single performer travels between fact and fiction, philosophy and poetry, restaging interviews and bringing to life a fragmented book, to ask how photography captures moments in time.
