A powerful story of paleness, blending in and standing out.

“I was born on the day the Pope came to Coventry, my home town. In my family this unexpected appearance was perceived as a blessing. A sublime gift”

Influenced by her experience as a person with albinism, Jo Bannon uses blinding light, proximity, movement and sound to create an extraordinary visual poem.

Alba explores the stories we tell of ourselves and the stories told about us, the myths we inherit and the ones we embody, the identities we cannot shake off and so instead perform.

About the Artist
Jo Bannon is a UK artist who makes live art and performance. She has presented work in the UK and Europe including The Barbican, In Between Time Festival, Arnolfini, Spill Festival of Performance, Battersea Arts Centre PAD Mainz and the National Theatre. She is an In Between Time Associate Artist and founder member of Residence.


Jo’s work is concerned with human exchange and encounter and explores how our physical bodies experience the world around us and how this sensory experience can or cannot be conveyed. Jo unpicks the ways in which we look, hear and sense our immediate environment in order to rethink or make unfamiliar these intrinsic human behaviours. Her performance work often manifests as intimate encounters designed for single or small audiences, alongside staged theatre work and installations.
