Antony Sher - Visualising Theatre (Autumn Art Lecture Series)

Antony Sher in conversation with Martin White (Emeritus Professor of Theatre at the University of Bristol)

25 October 2016, 6.15 pm, Wills Memorial Building, Queen's Road, Bristol, BS8 1RJ

When Antony Sher played Richard III, he published an account of his work on the part, Year of the King, which he subtitled ‘An Actor’s Diary and Sketchbook’. He is a gifted artist, and throughout his long and varied career has used his art to trace and capture his route to finding the essence of a particular role, to record his own and other actors’ work in rehearsal and often to produce more ‘finished’ paintings of the character who finally emerged. Exhibitions of his paintings and drawings have been held at the National Theatre, The London Jewish Cultural Centre, the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield and the Herbert Gallery in Coventry. In this conversation, drawing on examples of his own work, Sir Antony will discuss the relationship between his art and his acting.

Booking required via the online form.
