Shelley on a Loop is a homage to actress Shelley Duval and director Stanley Kubrick’s controversial process of film making in The Shining.

The legendary scene in which Shelley confronts a demonic Jack Nicholson with a baseball bat, is recreated as a live choreography that repeats on a loop as a visual performance installation.

Members of the public are invited to participate in an instructional session where they learn Shelley’s intensely dramatic role after which they can enter the looping performance structure for a given duration.

This event is part of neat16, a festival of Nottingham’s rich cultural programme that celebrates UNESCO City of Literature status.  Culture takes centre stage as we platform some of the finest dance, art, children’s theatre, drama, music, cinema and literature. Performed at Nottingham Contemporary.
