Hulton, Dorinda (2005)

Foursight Theatre’s Greek Productions

Volume 1: Medea by Euripides
Volume 2: Agamemnon by Aeschylus
Volume 3: Hecuba by Eurpides

Between 2000 and 2005 Foursight Theatre, a women’s theatre company based in Wolverhampton , with a national reputation throughout the UK and Canada, performed Cambridge University Press’ new translations of three classical plays: Euripides’ Medea, Aeschylus’ Agammemnon and Euripides’ Hecuba.

Two of these productions were directed by Dorinda Hulton who also wrote extensive notes, as director and dramaturg, concerning characters, costume, themes and staging for all three plays.

In order to support the study of these texts in their new translations, the Arts Documentation Unit, in association with Cambridge University Press, is releasing three interactive archives, each containing a video record of the performance, together with Hulton’s extensive notes linked to the audio-visual material.


Hunt, Jerry (1993)

The CNDO transcripts

12 Monographs in e-book form. Average length: 20 pages each.

Over twelve months, through 1991 and 1992, the Center for New Dance Development (CNDO), in Arnhem, The Netherlands, in collaboration with the Arts Documentation Unit, U.K., undertook to interview the contemporary dancers and related artists who were teaching residencies at the Centre during that time.

In all, some 36 artists from Europe, the United States and Canada, were asked to describe their work and its current development. The intention was to provide a snap-shot of some of the concerns of a generation of dancers in the early 1990s. From this material, separate monographs by dancers and related artists have been produced. (1993)

Hutch, Johnny (1994)

Acrobatic and vaudeville routines

150 minutes

Johnny Hutch was apprenticed to an Arab acrobat troupe in 1927, at the age of 11. Sixty-seven years later his energy remains unabated as he continues to pass on his encyclopedic knowledge of acrobatic and vaudeville routines to groups ranging from The Kosh and The People Show to the RSC and the Royal National Theatre.

In this archive, recorded at The London Studio in September 1994, he teaches a group of performers some of these skills. Nearing 80, he says that this has been his last workshop. We doubt it. (1994)
