MORE INFO

As a live iteration, What Not to Wear Out My Soul  is a site-specific video installation and live music performance. The piece combines material recorded during training sessions with Method Acting coach Tilly Blackwood (The Audition Doctor) and on location shots in Walthamstow shops. Theobald’s 2-channel video installation moves between staged situations and live video feed to explore the performance of everyday life, consumption and the concept of ‘buyer’s remorse’, referencing popular TV makeover shows such as Queer Eye, What Not To Wear and Streetmate. A live musical soundtrack accompanies the video, performed by the artist and accompanying musicians.

Sound track devised by Alice Theobald and developed in collaboration with Thomas Stone and Penny Klein.
