Action Hero (UK)

Action Hero is an interdisciplinary performance collective by Gemma Paintin and James Stenhouse, based in Bristol, UK. For the past decade, they have worked almost exclusively with each other and have toured together to more than twenty countries across 5 continents to critical and popular acclaim.

Their ongoing interests lie in the iconography of popular culture and its use; both as a weapon and as a shared cultural memory, and although their work manifests in many different forms, the live experience is at the heart of everything they do.
