Exploring the epic and the banal, Action Hero (Emma Paintin and James Steinhouse) creates performance that is intimate, distinctive and invigorating, examining the iconography of popular culture and its use; both as a weapon and as a shared cultural memory. This collection includes the pieces Hoke's Bluff, Slap Talk, Watch Me Fall, A Western, Frontman and Extraordinary Rendition.

About Author

Gemma Paintin and James Stenhouse have been working together as Action Hero since 2005. They create events that use the audience as the co-creators of the work. They are interested in ideas that link audiences together and unify them as part of a live event, and the building of temporary communities. Limited resources have created an aesthetic of roughness and intimacy that has become central to their work. They also have a long standing obsession with America and pop culture. They have performed all across the UK and in the U.S, Brazil, China, Germany, Austria, Bosnia, Thailand, Canada, Portugal, Spain and France.
