Hauser and Wirth, Somerset

A collaboration between Hauser and Wirth and The Bristol Old Vic Young Company.

We Do, We Undo, We Redo was a promenade performance at Hauser & Wirth Somerset in 2019 that responded to the exhibition Unconscious Landscape: Works from the Ursula Hauser Collection. The experimental play was developed over the course of two weeks during the Bristol Old Vic Youth Theatre Summer School by a group of young people aged 11 - 16 years old.

Led by director and choreographer Maisie Newman, the students explored themes of identity, gender and the work of Louise Bourgeois resulting in a unique showcase that incorporated colourful costumes, props, spoken word, music and dance.

Since opening in 2015, Hauser & Wirth Somerset has run the annual theatre summer school in partnership with Bristol Old Vic Theatre, as part of the education programme.
