Things That Go Bump

Fireraisers Theatre Co.


Photographic documentation of this project.

South Hill Park is widely recognised as one of the most haunted houses in England. Many accounts tell of two little girls – neglected by their governess who is keeping an assignation with her lover – trapped in their first-floor nursery as flames consume the building.

Fireraisers’ imaginative revisiting of the mansion’s haunted past combined video projection, pyrotechnics and a specially composed soundscape, with a community cast of twenty-five performers who became the silent ghosts of the park’s tangled history. The audience, in masks, followed a trail through the darkened woods of the estate before finally arriving back at the sanctuary of the house.

“Pau is just the most fantastic photographer!

He’s wonderful at portraits and unrivalled at capturing the most dramatic shot during theatre shows for my company, Fireraisers.

Friendly, professional and with a great eye for the right shot that absolutely captures the moment. Can’t recommend him highly enough.”
