JO BANNON TOURS ALBA TO COLCHESTER ARTS CENTRE
A candid, powerful and moving self-portrait’ EXEUNT MAGAZINE
“I was born on the day the Pope came to Coventry, my home town. In my family this unexpected appearance was perceived as a blessing.”
A sublime performance influenced by her experience as a person with albinism, Jo Bannon uses blinding light, proximity, movement and sound to create an extraordinary visual poem.
Alba explores the stories we tell of ourselves and the stories told about us, the myths we inherit and the ones we embody, the identities we cannot shake off and so instead perform.
