The Three Rooms In Valerie's Head
The Three Rooms in Valerie's Head by Dan Berry and David Gaffney is a Lakes International Comic Art Festival commission. Experimental and original, it's a live performance of a graphic novel with projected images and specially commissioned music by acclaimed recording artist Sara Lowes. The piece explores relationships, memory, loneliness and obsession in a darkly humorous way, and will also be published in book form. Dan Berry is an illustrator, designer, cartoonist and lecturer.
The first performance was on Saturday 17th October at the Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal, as part of the Lakes International Comic Arts festival and was amazingly well received.
