DR BLIGHTY – SEE IT THIS WEEK

24 May 2016

A new evocative outdoor performance, with music and spectacular video mapping, explores the stories of the wounded Indian soldiers who came to be treated in Brighton during the First World War.

Nutkhut’s Dr Blighty throws a spotlight on this group of men that travelled across the world to fight for the allies. Set in Brighton’s Royal Pavillion Estate, the immersive walk-through installation brings to life the experiences of the soldiers and the locals who came to know and care for them.

Directed by Ajay Chhabra with design by Tom Piper.  The week of installations is also accompanied by two concerts at Brighton Dome marrying classical music from East and West.

Dates: Tue 24 – Sat 28 May
Times: Immersive installation: 2pm – 10pm | Projection presentations: 9.30pm – 10.20pm

Location: Royal Pavilion Garden
Tickets: FREE

Watch the film where the Artistic Director, Ajay Chhabra, talks about the project.
