TitleBodies in Flight Archive
DescriptionPapers, photographs and other audio-visual materials relating largely to the work of experimental performance company Bodies in Flight between 1989 and 2001, as gathered and deposited by Simon Jones, co-director of Bodies in Flight. The collection largely relates to the creation of Bodies in Flight's shows and contains draft scripts and scores developed through rehearsal processes, photographs documenting the performances and other audio-visual items (both those used as part of performances, as well as video documentation of the performances themselves), publicity print and other marketing-related materials, publications and press cuttings, some set designs and correspondence between the company and external producers and technicians.
Date1989 - 2013

Simon Jones is also professor of performance in the Department of Theatre at the University of Bristol, and much of Bodies in Flight's work is related to Jones's development of practice-as-research methodologies, which are reflected in the University of Bristol Drama Department archive (reference BDD). See for example, the PARIP (Practice As Research In Performance) and Performing Documents projects.
