A Thousand Words
It is a dramatic exploration of how we present ourselves to the world. In a series of sumptuous and tantalising portraits Benji Reid captures both the vulnerability and strength of his subjects. Built around a spectacular re-staging of Leonardo Da Vinci’s 'The Last Supper’, A Thousand Words is provocative and playful and sure to capture your attention.
A key figure in the Manchester arts scene, Benji Reid has been a major contributor to the Black Physical Theatre canon over the last 30 years. During that time he has made the journey from Hip Hop theatre pioneer to visual theatre and photography. A Thousand Words is the first exhibition from this incredible and singular talent.
'Contained within these images, the choreographer, the director and photographer are in constant conversation.' Benji Reid
