Here are couple of Christmas video treats for you - the new peepshow films! I hope that together they will make fun viewing for you over the Christmas holidays, amongst re-runs of White Christmas, It’s A Wonderful Life and Morecambe & Wise specials. Here is the link to the audience-view of the peepshow, as performed by Spike and I: www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxYqwJpBrk0 (roughly 20 minutes).Here is the link to our TED-style talk about the creation of the piece (many of you feature in it!): youtu.be/4AApmbBYsrs (roughly 12 minutes).These short films are the the product of working on the AHRC-funded programme 'Modern Visuality and Nineteenth-Century Performance', but Covid restrictions meant that we could not perform them live, so we made these films instead. Please do leave us your thoughts & feedback.A peaceful Yuletide to you all...TonyAKA Uncle Tacko!AKA the Raree ManX ... See MoreSee Less
