Over the period of a year Gavin Quinn visited the private homes of 100 actors and asked them to try and answer the question: Why do you think you became an actor? Each response was filmed and recorded. He then subsequently photographed each of them. The result is this book. This book tells the story of these one hundred actors: one hundred illuminating answers to a simple question. In "One" the actor talks to the reader from the stillness of their portrait within their own environments. The book is one element of a large-scale performance project created and conceived by Pan Pan, involving 100 actors, 100 rooms and 100 audience members in a specially designed structure designed by the sculptor Andrew Clancy. Subtitled "Healing with Theatre", this one on one meeting is enabled by an outflow of energy from actor to audience through this intimate setting, so that we become in a sense healed by the experience. In the live performance and the film version of "One", the audience meets the performer one to one, in much the same way as we discover each actor as we turn the pages of this book. Overall, "One" is an arena of creativity where the audience and artist interact, providing a special way for art and performance to be experienced and looked at. It is an aesthetic encounter made concrete for both actor and audience: multifaceted, personal, bodily and intellectually illuminating. This book will appeal to all interested in the theatre, photography and fine books As the total print-run for the publication will be 600-26 copies numbered A - Z and 574 other numbered copies - it is envisaged that the book shall sell out quickly.
