Join Richard DeDomenici in his attempt to remake several minutes of the iconic 2002 Manchester movie 24 Hour Party People…
Since 2013 DeDomenici’s inexplicably popular Redux Project has caused a stir over sixty times, in places as diverse as London, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Seoul, Sydney, Beijing, and Milton Keynes. The project celebrates and subverts the cultural heritage of the places it visits, by attempting to make shot-for-shot remakes of scenes from famous films + TV, on a shoe-string budget with amateur local crews, in the same locations where the originals were filmed.
In November 2015 DeDomenici adapted The Redux Project for television as part of the BBC4 event On Stage: Live from Television Centre — described by journalist Matt Trueman as “one of the smartest, strangest subversive half hours of television I’ve ever seen”
The project’s second visit to Manchester — following May 2016’s Queer As Yolk with Eggs Collective — returns Redux HOME with Word of Warning for a glittering World Première.
Please note that filming has now finished and we no longer require volunteer extras.
Who is he?
Richard DeDomenici makes work that is social, joyful, topical and political — although rarely simultaneously. He specialises in urban-absurdist interventions which strive to create the kind of uncertainty that leads to possibility.
What people have said about The Redux Project
outrageous… hilarious… sharp critique of modern myth-making…
DeDomenici’s performance is a Don Quixote tilt at a cultural hegemony…
typical DeDomenici lunacy… brilliant… refreshing and delightful.
Total Theatre Magazine
Brilliantly irreverent stuff from DeDomenici.
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
Better than a trip to the Multiplex.
Eastern Daily Press
DeDomenici delivered by the bucket load.
