The project was a collaboration between live art collective Akleriah, film maker Jason Wen and myself (Jillian Wallis)as theatre director. The 'attitudes' refers to Emma Hamilton’s celebrated solo performance where she adopted emotionally charged poses based on classical Greek and Roman sculptures. We offered visitors to The Queen’s House a contemporary re-imagining of Emma’s world and an insight into the rags to riches story of this iconic 18th Century figure. The performance was seen by over 300 visitors to The Queen's House art gallery.
