Hugo Ball Photoshoot

Photoshoot for the Rapture of Hugo Ball, by Roger Gregg.

The Rapture of Hugo Ball is a dark comedy staged as a radio show with live music and sound effects. A satire tracing a performance artist’s unsuccessful struggle to gain recognition and acclaim in an independent world. The protagonist finds himself thwarted at every turn by an arts culture rife with the rivalry of competing egos, choked by academic jargon and administered by indifferent bureaucratic gatekeepers. Though set in the realm of performance art, the tale equally applies to all the creative arts wherein the individual artist has to struggle to establish a viable career.

The show has been staged twice, initially a the Collaborations in Smock Alley and again at the Ranelagh Arts Festival. If you’re interested in the show coming to your venue or festival get in touch with Roger.
