The first of a series of political biographies by Robin Deacon, this lecture performance gave an alternative perspective on the life and times of former us Secretary of State Colin Powell. Originally a topical piece written in response to Powell's resignation in 2004, this reworked version continued to interrogate the theme of comparative biography between performer and politician, while questioning its own relevance in the light of Powell's virtual disappearance from the public eye. Upon examining the biographical description of the politician, Robin Deacon muses on whether Powell's story could be his own self-portrait. This version of the performance was filmed at Battersea Arts Centre, London on the 12th and 13th of October, 2005. For more information see:
