Did I Tell You What Happened?

Did I Tell You What Happened?

Art documentary by Alda Terracciano. A LIFT Enquiry Commission 2005.

The film, commissioned by LIFT Festival, gives a creative account of the public experiment that took place during May and June 2004 at the Bargehouse as part of the LIFT 04 Enquiry. As a collective organism whose members included 100 Enquirers, Evidencers, invited international artists, audiences, and members of staff, the Bargehouse offered a cumulative answer to the question “What is theatre to you?” at the core of the festival. Exploring the interplay between the enquirers and their witnesses, the film is an act of recall conjuring presence out of absence and voices out of the silence.

Did I Tell You What Happened was produced with the support of Arts Council England, and presented by LIFT at the Curzon Soho Cinema in London on 9 May 2005 and at Creami Festival in Milan in November 2005.
