It's Happening in Norwich


After the success of beautiful video portrait Margarete at Norfolk & Norwich Festival in 2015, Polish artists Janek Turkowski & Iwona Nowacka returned in 2016 with a World Premiere commission. It’s Happening in Norwich was an intimate video-storytelling performance presented in a medieval merchant’s house on Elm Hill.

Every place has its own biography, it carries a story that wants to be told. It’s Happening in Norwich explored the collection of amateur films made by Charles Scott from the 1930s to the 1970s. For over 40 years Scott chronicled the city with the two film reels he could afford a year. In the performance, Turkowski and Nowacka created a homely environment as they recounted the stories of Scott’s films and their own experiences carrying on his work in a performance about observing everyday life.
