Sedated By A Brick have been creating the final parts to their adaptation of inspirational and seminal book, the Shining.
Audience feedback from last showing: “that was fucking astounding”
We think that we may have written a new classic for the English-speaking world. An over-production of words most lovely in its malignancy. Bernard Manning is dead. Kate Bush is a recluse and Elton John is wearing his glasses. Surely nothing could go wrong! Round the church backwards three times I divorce thee, I divorce thee, I divorce thee. It’s the ever popular @serratedbyanaif…..come to spoil our self-congratulatory party.… Read on...
Sedated By A Brick got to ask Matthew Goulish 10 questions about his performance ‘9 Beginnings’.
9 Beginnings is a performance from Every House Has a Door developed in response to an invitation from Performing Documents. Every House Has A Door will restage the beginnings of 9 historical performances by 9 different artists or companies found in the Arnolfini archive or University of Bristol’s Live Art Archives, and re-imagine them as a new composition.

“The idea of murder frequently evokes the idea of sea and seafarers. No precise image of sea and seafarers may at once spring to mind: it is rather that Murder surges over our thought in breakers of emotion. If we suppose seaports to be theatre of recurrent crimes, then the explanation is simple and need not detain us; but the chronicles are numberless from which we learn that the murderer was a man of the sea – either in reality or imagination – and if the latter, then crime will have less affinity with the sea.” Jean Genet Querelle of Brest… Read on...
For flour to explode, it must form a highly dispersed dust. Approximately two ounces (56 grams) of flour suspended in a cubic yard (one cubic meter) of air will have explosive properties. If a flame is introduced to the flour dust, the individual flour particles will burn. If the dust cloud is large enough, a flash fire inside the dust cloud will result, which can create a serious explosion.
Flour explosions are a much larger risk in areas where large amounts of flour are handled. Although a small dust cloud of flour might ignite in a home kitchen, the damage would probably not be severe. In a grain elevator or flour mill, however, the potential for a very large cloud of flour or grain dust is much higher.… Read on...
I’m very excited to be able to say that we finally have a copy of the ERMAZING “Der Todesking” winging its way towards us…
No other film director, perhaps with the exception of Bunuel, captures “the epic decaying image” or the tableau mort to the extent we are using for our piece. His use of these setups to explicate the differences between living and dead are useful to us; and his films hint to the connectedness beyond physicality, even through it into viscerality, that we are also trying to create in our piece.
The often clear demonstrative process used by the film-makers and the phoneyness of the props and actions interests us too:
plus the exquisite music of Hermann Kopp
Unfortunately, its very difficult to get hold of “Schramm” – another classic Buttgereit film – so here’s some trailers:
