This work co-directed with TILLY SHINER is in production now. The lead actor is JERRY KILLICK, director of photography is BILLY TREVIT with BECAN RICKARD-ELLIOT. Key performers in the film include: Melanie Pappenheim, Flora Wellesley-Wesley, George Njoki, Dry Cleaning Band and Aisha Orazbayeva. Other artists to be confirmed. We will premiere with live orchestral score by SAMI EL-ENANY at KunstFestSpiele in Hannover May 2020.
Our film is part zombie movie and part documentary. It follows the journey of the ghost of Beethoven who arrives in London on the Halloween/not-Brexit night of 31st of October 2019 hoping to recoup some money that he felt was owed him by the Royal Philharmonic Society - they had commissioned his 9th symphony. As he was in life our Beethoven is a hard drinking, heavy smoking irascible genius with abject personal hygiene. London is gripped by the ongoing hysteria of Brexit and the equally confusing but apolitical obsession with Halloween fancy dress. Beethoven is forced to negotiate this bi-polar city and its piss-sodden streets helped only by a series of "visions" and the firm belief that London owes him some serious cash. 
And while on the subject, we are fundraising for the production costs of the next phase of the film, if you want to buy one of my prints in support we'd be very happy. Link Below:

J.S.Bach B minor partita for violin solo arranged for two violins 'Allemande' and 'Double'
Violin virtuoso Aisha Orazbayeva plays a Bach duet
Bach's B minor violin partita is unlike any other from the 6 sonatas and partitas cycle. There are four dance movements each followed by a double, the dance movements and the doubles mirror each other in their harmonic and metric structure. I was fascinated to see how it would sound if you played the dances and the doubles at the same time. Sometimes it sounds like another Bach double violin concerto, other times they merge together or become each other's shadow. It offers a different perspective both for performers and listeners to discover, this often familiar piece, anew.

52 Portraits
A film by Hugo Glendinning, choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion
52 Portraits is an epic love song written to an art form. Dance.

Spirit Labour 2016
A film by Adrian Heathfield and Hugo Glendinning
In this visual essay, Glendinning and Heathfield follow the creative practice of sculptor and performance artist Janine Antoni: her collaborations and conversations with the choreographer Anna Halprin and the writer Hélène Cixous. Spirit Labour traces the lines of connection between these artists inclined toward elemental exposure and non-human forces. The film asks: what kind of labour is it, to work communally with the bodies, movements, expressions and affects of others, to dedicate one’s lifework to the othering that issues from these relations? How might we think of these labours and affinities as forms of infrastructure?
41 minutes 
Featuring: Janine Antoni, Anna Halprin, Hélène Cixous
Directed and Edited by Hugo Glendinning and Adrian Heathfield

Outside Again 2017
A documentary by Adrian Heathfield and Hugo Glendinning
Outside Again is a short documentary on Tehching Hsieh’s performances, made by photographer Hugo Glendinning with writer and curator Adrian Heathfield, and shot in Taipei and New York. Returning to the original sites of his performances many decades later, Hsieh momentarily relives their sense. Some locations have transformed beyond recognition, some have remained relatively unchanged, and others have fallen into dereliction. The occasion of these returns prompts Hsieh to articulate his thoughts on art and its outsides, long durations, and the testing of human limits.
Directed and edited by Adrian Heathfield and Hugo Glendinning. Commissioned by Taipei Fine Arts Museum of Taiwan for Doing Time, the Taiwan Pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2017, Venice.
