All Roads Lead to Rome
March 24, 2015 @ 7:30 pm£6 – £8
Chris has lovingly repaired his family Triumph Herald Estate so that he can drive it from his childhood home in Braintree to Rome via Turin where this quintessentially English car was designed.
Part investigation into his father’s time as a Polish soldier in the Italian Campaign and part muse on consumerism, All Roads Lead to Rome hilariously brings together car mechanics, a road trip, dictators and the fetishisation of possessions in a solo performance using old photos, new film and surprising mechanical objects.
‘He takes us from the personal to the political, across a great swathe of 20th Century history, all without leaving the driving seat of the Triumph Herald.’
‘A simple, effective and intellectual piece,told with warmth and a twinkle.’
Presented by House and Artsadmin. Part of Bath Taps Into Science.
