The Waste Land – The Poetry of Super 8
The Waste Land was the culmination of two years’ work and a collaboration between Christopher Hall and poet and writer Ian Harker. It was conceived as an expanded cinema performance that incorporated a live reading of T.S. Eliot’s poem with simultaneous multiple projections, live sound effects and sustained musical pieces.
It was performed on May 1st 2010 as part of OKO’s C I N E M A P O V E R A weekend in the disused former TK Maxx space, Leeds Shopping Plaza, and formed part of a series of events taking place across Leeds under the banner of Art in Unusual Spaces.
