In 1996 Robert Pacitti travelled to New York to meet and spend time with author and raconteur, Quentin Crisp, in order to produce a new work that took Crisp’s infamous autobiography The Naked Civil Servant as its starting point.

Exploring issues of liberty – and disobedience – Civil uses live performance, film, slides, original sound materials and music. Since Crisp’s death the piece has undeniably shifted, and a work that set out to explore shared aspirations and joint activism now reads as a series of images and ideas placed in relation to notions of legacy.

For the past 18 years the internationally acclaimed Pacitti Company has been making award winning performance work for a range of theatre, gallery and site-specific spaces worldwide.
