    Adam on St Agnes’ Eve at 1:25 reimagined artist Ivor Davies’s multimedia theatre event, ‘Adam on St Agnes’ Eve’ at the Swansea University Arts Festival on 21 January 1968, at a scale of 1:25.

    Inspired by Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales’s tradition of dioramas, as well as Victorian toy theatres, architectural and design maquettes, and small-scale scene-of-crime reconstructions, the 2016 presentation involved the animation of a replica model of the original site with miniature projections, soundtrack and actions.

    The event has been commissioned as part of Bodor's AHRC-funded collaborative doctoral award, exploring how historical performance survives in museum contexts. It accompanied the major exhibition ‘Silent Explosion: Ivor Davies and Destruction in Art’ (19 November 2015 – 20 March 2016) curated by Bodor.
