Just the other day I was writing about taking photos for Dave Diamond’s previous escapology show, Submersion. The reason, of course, for the reminiscence, was that I had been asked to take photos for his new act: Thames 1745.
Thames 1745 is the show for entertaining an audience of adults and children alike, we return you to Kingston-upon-Thames, in the year 1745. Watch as the Landlady of the Queen’s Head is sentenced to the ducking stool for selling short measures and abusive language. Can she escape her fate?http://www.davediamond.co.uk/the-show—thames-1745.html
This self contained show features contortion, pole and Cyr Wheel and finishes with a nail biting finale as a daring escapologist tries to find a way out from a tank of water!
It was great being back at the The Fire School, and taking photos of Dave and his co-performers, some of whom I’d worked with before in shooting cabaret.
