About

The Camera Flashes. We are exposed. The photo dies, yet the subjects live on…

Beginning with curiosity, four strangers meet under the watchful gaze of a camera. With no limitations, where will they end up? 

‘It gets under your skin and into your blood, and there it fizzes beautifully.’
-Dr. Roanna Mitchell 

Peeking in the Portrait is inspired by the life and works of Lady Clementina Hawarden, one of Britain’s first female photographers. By fusing live photography with dynamic physical theatre, GOLKK discover that the camera is never simply an object but a playful and present character in our daily lives. 

Peeking’ challenges audiences to become meaning-makers, rather than passive spectators. The open narrative explores themes such as:

  • The blurring of visual art & theatre boundaries 
  • The presence of cameras in modern society and its effect on our everyday relationships
  • The legacy of photography

With playful and subtle ensemble encounters, GOLKK will draw you into the present, offering you an experience which is not only live, but ALIVE. 

GOLKK Theatre are current artist in residence at the University of Kent and the Gulbenkian, Canterbury. ‘Peeking in the Portrait’ has had success in Canterbury performances and at Dreams Before Dawn Festival 2017 in Paris.

This is GOLKK’s tour debut where audiences are welcome to witness the curious world of Peeking in the Portrait inside their favourite gallery spaces in Kent.
