Beautiful Thing, performance recording
A short 1 minute documentation of a live production of Beautiful Thing, produced by Greenwich and Docklands Interational Festival. This iconic, optimistic love story about teenage boys Jamie and Ste is given a homecoming in this unique outdoor production of Jonathan Harvey’s well-loved play. The production was the finale of Greenwich and Docklands International Festival in 2018, taking place on and around the original south Thamesmead locations where the play (and 1996 Channel Four film) were set, marking the 50th anniversary of the first families moving to Thamesmead. The new dance-theatre production, capturing the urban realism and fairytale fantasy of Harvey’s script, featured digital projections by NOVAK, new music by Roma Yagnik and a community chorus.
