Originally displayed at Camden’s Cob Gallery in 2014, Eleanor is a visually stunning film installation, to be housed for its second showing at the brand new Soho Revue gallery on Greek Street, from April 14th.
Eleanor, by Alex Warren and Tobias Ross-Southall, is the story of three solitary characters, individually inspired by the poems of W H Auden (If I Could Tell You), Robert Frost (Acquainted with the Night) and Leonard Cohen (The Faithless Wife), and played by Golden Globe-winning actress Ruth Wilson.
As the women’s paths cross during the course of an evening, the characters move between the three screens, inviting the audience to question their own lives and how we view those around us.
Eleanor is a film about women, about people, about solitude, about companionship, about human nature. It finds a levity and a colour within darkness, and strives to remind us that it is the people around us in life that are important.
Expect a seamless fusing of major art forms (cinematic aesthetic, music, poetry, prose and dance), with collaborations from three of the UK’s finest and most celebrated young writers – Polly Stenham, Anya Reiss and Michael Lesslie – dance from The Royal Ballet, and a haunting score from Blaine Harrison of The Mystery Jets and Johnny Lloyd.
