Hector Dyer “Thank You for Your Patience”
Presented by Hackney Showroom.
Hector Dyer will perform Thank You for Your Patience, exploring how we pass on knowledge of danger, how we protect one another from curiosity, and whether memories can ever be buried. From our day-to-day actions to the collective imprints we leave behind, this provocative new show exposes the nuclear future we are creating. The performance premiered at the Dreams Before Dawn Festival in Paris and Hackney Showroom, London in 2017. This will be its first production in Sweden, directed by Hackney Showroom Co-Artistic Director Sam Curtis Lindsay.
Hector Dyer is part of the experimental performance group Ponyboy Curtis, directed by Chris Goode, and an associate artist with Bellow Theatre. His solo work includes In Your Own Time and Cyborg Feels at the Barbican, This is Not a Place of Honour, (The Albany), and Stepping Back (Bristol Old Vic). Directing credits include Dreamless Sleep (Arts Theatre), The Flood (Tristan Bates Theatre), and Dubailand (Finborough Theatre).
