9780889228108: Studies in Motion: The Hauntings of Eadweard Muybridge

The stop-motion sequences of pioneer photographer Eadweard Muybridge captured the moving body on film for the first time and laid the foundation for modern cinema. Yet the man behind the camera lived a life filled with Victorian melodrama: infidelity, jealousy, betrayal, murder, and an abandoned child. Tried for murder after killing his wife’s lover, he was acquitted on the basis of justifiable homicide.

Those events, which predate his subsequent obsession with stopping time and freezing motion, become the ghosts that haunt Muybridge in the fictional world of Governor General’s Award winning dramatist Kevin Kerr’s play, Studies in Motion.

Cast of 4 women and 8 men.

Review:


“A piece of theatre polished to brilliance, so complete and so completely satisfying that this awe-inspiring oddity should be seen on major stages around the world.”
– Vancouver Sun

“A lucid, visually compelling and forceful piece of theatre.”
– Calgary Herald

Studies in Motion is always seductive to look at ... the resulting complexity is sublime.”
– Georgia Straight

“For Studies in Motion, Kerr has written a complex, thoughtfully layered script that makes us laugh and care about this deeply troubled man.”
– Globe and Mail

Studies in Motion ... takes a subject from the world of science and breathes theatrical life into it with music, movement, imagery and text ... production values don’t get higher than this. Feast your eyes.”
– Vancouver Courier
