Enter a dark Victorian dining room, full of curios and clues; dinner has begun but the guests have gone. Then onwards and downwards into the cavernous interiors of the Clink Street vaults by the River Thames in London, transformed into an extraordinary sequence of time tableaux by theatre visionary Robert Wilson and audio artist Hans Peter Kuhn.
Celebrated filmmaker Mike Figgis takes his camera on a disconcerting subterranean journey through time and space. Edited by Jo Ann Kaplan, the film includes footage of Wilson’s lecture at the Royal Geographical Society and interviews with Hans Peter Kuhn and production designer Michael Howells. This work was commissioned by Artangel and Beck’s in 1995, and is available on DVD.
