About: Shooting with Light

She reinvents herself as Gerda Taro, becoming one of the pioneering women to photograph the front line. In this startling and visually rich production Idle Motion expose one of the most remarkable untold stories of our age.

Today we live in a world where our lives can feel like they are defined by our collective Kodak moments. With the compulsion to capture it all we are flooded by a myriad of images. And yet within the 2.5 billion photographs taken every day, there will only be a precious few that we will continue to hold on to.

Described by The Guardian’s Lyn Gardner as ‘a brilliant emerging company’, Idle Motion use innovative staging, physicality and multimedia to interweave the dramatic stories of photographs undeveloped, scattered and unearthed: This is a story about capturing moments, freezing shadows and the photographs that outlive our memories.

Idle Motion are a New Diorama Associate Ensemble. This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund, The Lowry, Salford, Greenwich Theatre and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Idle Motion are associate artists at the Lowry, Salford.

Idle Motion create highly visual theatre that places human stories at the heart of our work. Integrating creative and playful stagecraft with innovative video projection and beautiful physicality, their productions are humorous, evocative and sensitive pieces of theatre which leave a lasting impression on their audiences.
