Geist archiveThe legacy of musician Alexander Geist, has long held an enigmatic appeal for music lovers and conspiracy theorists alike. In Geist, filmmaker Imogen Hampstead (The King, Alabama Road) attempts to put together the pieces of the puzzle that made up his extraordinary life. Using archive material, newly discovered footage, and conversations with those closest to Geist, Hampstead attempts to take an unflinching look at the man behind the myth. But are there some tales best left untold? Can skeletons like these ever be forced back into the shadows? Or will secrets truth find their way out into the light, regardless of the cost? A new multimedia performance piece, Geist, is a beguiling mixture of video, interview, and original music, an uncanny trip into a world of paranoia and personae. Part Film Noir, part pop concert, the piece proposes a cinematic new language for theatre as it explores the ruthless ambition, excess, and revenge which demarcate our cultural landscape.
