Fallow Field. An account of a video installation mounted at the Royal Festival Hall, London, in 1994 by Lulu Quinn, Tony Sinden and Stan Steele, and featuring Major the shire horse.

Cuckoo. A Grey Suit archive special. This brilliant performance by Station House Opera was first performed in 1987. To the music of bowed cellos and sawn wardrobes, the company nail each other to the furniture and elevate the floor, proving that nothing is stable other than instability. 40 mins.
