Invisible Things: Documentation from a Devising Process

Harradine, David (2011) Invisible Things: Documentation from a Devising Process. Fevered Sleep, London. ISBN 9780955908217


Invisible Things is a book about devising new work for performance.

Taking the research, development and performance of Fevered Sleep's An Infinite Line: Brighton as its focus, Invisible Things is structured as a series of themed chapters intercut with case studies of key elements of the creative process.

Through a combination of text, photographs, drawings, extracts from artist's notebooks, critical commentary and dialogue, Invisible Things offers a rare and personal insight into each stage of a creative journey, revealing all the complexities of a devising process from the point of view of the people at its heart.

The chapters explore areas such as collaboration, dramaturgy, working with animals, developing conceptual frameworks and design. Case studies cover things such as light, sound, structure, organising rehearsals, and roles within a company.

Invisible Things is also an experiment in how to document and remember a live event in another form: how to turn an ephemeral performance into a book.
