Eyes on Stalks


This is an autobiographical roller coaster through three decades of wild inventions. From ‘Raising the Titanic’ in London to `King Lear’ on a Japanese ski slope, ‘Eyes on Stalks’ covers the principles and practice of site-specific theatre, extensive community residencies and new rites of passage. It brings `Engineers of the Imagination’ up to date and is a hands-on tract revealing the Welfare State’s radical philosophy of Art. Lavishly illustrated with 30 photographs, scripts and over 100 drawings from John Fox’s sketchbook. It is an exciting and provocative manual.
