Abstract: I took the site-specific space of this room in Chatsworth, designed by Sir Jeffry Wyatville as a ballroom for the 6th Duke of Devonshire, and completed in 1832. It was also used as a banqueting-room, and was subsequently used for entertainment of various kinds.
In 1896, the 8th Duke commissioned William Hemsley, a leading London designer, ‘to fit the room out as a theatre’. After 20 years as a textile conservation studio, the room is now used for a strictly limited number of performances and events. In addition to this new site-specific space, Bess of Hardwick (1527-1608) and contemporary slo-mo film were new departures for the re-devising, research, creation and making, and writing of this new iteration.
