        Dig, The         Voice Thief, The         Walk at the Edge of the World, A



Dig, The

Synopsis:
the original research for this piece began with a curiosity about woman as virgin and whore. Initial performance investigation took place at Whitefriars - a museum and base for Coventry's archeology Unit. This was followed by interviews with archeologists and a visit to a dig at Coombe abbey. Whitefriars was associated with a visit of Queen Elizabeth (the virgin Queen), the civil war and workhouses in the 1800s. a workhouse for me meant - the place of sentence for an unmarried mother. In retrospect this was a subconscious journey into Carran Waterfield's mother's life story, which ultimately became Looking for the Tallyman in 1998/99
