Enter the Twilight is a piece about imagination and the worlds we create for ourselves through fantasy and cultural myths. It explores notions of how individuals mythicise heroes, and further how they place themselves into these fantasies. Through this piece I am interrogating the individual’s take on mythic figures as I have done in previous work, but am also interested in focussing on how different cultural reference points can change or skew one’s ideas.

Enter the Twilight is a collaboration between myself and the performers on screen. They invented their characters, and then I wrote a story around everything they had invented, which they then acted out on screen. This was a very enjoyable project to work on. The enthusiasm and good-will of everyone involved – from the performers, costume and make-up people, to the technical personnel and sound person – was inspiring.
