Double Bill – Hatch & Broadway present Pat Ashe & Deborah Pearson

We are absolutely thrilled that Hatch and Broadway Media Arts have joined forces to present a short-season of performance-y work: pieces that play with the cinema as space to tell stories, embody someone else and for a short while transport us to another place.

This September, Hatch and Broadway will host as artist-in-residence Pat Ashe, who will develop a new performance work in and for a cinema auditorium as part of his ongoing project An Oasis in 5 Parts. The project will begin with a free showing of the the first part of An Oasis and culminate in a double-bill featuring Deborah Pearson’s award winning Like You Were Before along with work-in-progress from Pat Ashe’s residency.



Pat Ashe‘s unique performance style mixes video games and technology with stories overheard and remembered. This is the first of part of a series of works based around place, memory and the concept of oasis. Part 1 (shown on 4 September at the start of the residency) is an attempt to find a place Ashe could consider an oasis in a town that he has very little love for.

An Oasis – Part 2 is an audio tour of a place we might know or a place we might not want to know. An Oasis – Part 4 will be a video game. An Oasis – Part 3 and An Oasis – Part 5 are under construction. This is a chance to see fragments of the project Pat has been developing during his residency at Broadway.

Pat will present An Oasis – Work-in-Progress in the Cinema space at the beginning of the event. This will be followed by an opportunity to experience other parts of the project around the building in foyers, on screens and through headphones in the bar. We would welcome any feedback on the work so far.


Deborah Pearson is a live artist, playwright and producer, as well as founder and co-director of the legendary Forest Fringe. Like You Were Before is a lament to the fact that time can’t be put on pause, to the tender fragility of magnetic-media and to mental storage. A show for people who sit backwards on trains, who re-read emails from over two years ago, and who hate to see anything new or unfamiliar on visits to their hometown. This is a show about moving forward backwards.

Like You Were Before is a BAC Scratchfest Commission. Developed at BAC and the Forest Fringe Microfestival at the Arches, 2010

Tickets: £7
