A fascinating and evocative selection of photographic and other images of acrobats in the beautiful setting of the Divinity School, but only for one evening – catch it if you can…

Bodley’s Librarian invites you to join Harriet Heyman, author, and Acey Harper, photographer, in a conversation about “dancing on the thin edge of possibility”

Convocation House and Divinity School, Bodleian Library

23rd January 2012, 5.30pm (display viewable from 5.00pm)

Heyman and Harper will screen videos on the making of the book Private Acts, an extraordinary photographic record of acrobats in unexpected, open spaces. Refreshments will follow the presentations and there will be an opportunity to purchase signed copies of Private Acts.  Selected materials from the Bodleian illustrating acrobatics over the centuries will be on display.

The event is open to all but please register in advance:
