Triangle’s Work In Times of War DVD-ROM is a compilation of Richard Talbot & Carran Waterfield’s award-winning collaborations with museum professionals and their unique productions inspired by Coventry’s World War Two archives and collections. The development of Triangle’s creative response to official and informal archives is recorded in this DVD-ROM. High-quality video documentation from their large-scale performances in remote locations is compiled here alongside child participants’ hand-held footage from the early development in gallery spaces.
Previously unseen documentation from Triangle archives introduces Carran Waterfield’s first performative interpretations of the impact of war on the home front in Coventry.
Four projects are analysed in depth and supported with project descriptions, transcribed performance texts, critical analysis and interviews with the company and the many young participants, trainee actors, museum professionals and educationalists who have worked on these projects.
The DVD-ROM provides a thorough introduction to Triangle’s interactive strategies, comical re-enactments, and the company’s philosophy of work with young people.
Triangle’s projects have been cited as exemplary in the fields of both museum studies and interactive performance.
This project was supported by PALATINE and The Herbert Museum and Art Gallery, Coventry.
