Hawkers Pick Over Fruit Here


Photo by Zoe Manders.

Filmed in the soon to be demolished Circus Street Market Hall, the straybird artists – Becky Edmunds and Lucy Cash – along with photographer Zoe Manders – pay tribute to this unique building, reflecting on its distinct architecture and the role it has played in the lives of generations of Brighton families.   

Various members of these families; grandfathers, fathers and sons who worked at this wholesale fruit and veg market, were  invited  to describe what the site looked , sounded  and felt like at the height of its working life. 

The resulting installation of still and moving image has a choreographic sensibility as the patterns and rhythms of their disappearing way of life are revealed. 

Commissioned by South East Dance and supported by National Lottery through Arts Council England .
