The Imagination Lab
The Workshop, 26 Lambeth High St.
Join us for a part-workshop, part-experience event. Together we will explore Stravinsky's ‘The Firebird’ in our multi-sensory way, and it will culminate in a 20-minute participatory performance, ‘Iow The Flowing Bird’, as inspired by the music. Iow the Flowing Bird is a gem-operated piece of theatre, it travels as quickly and as strangely as your dreams. It is a collaboration between BitterSuite and the imaginations, ideas and feelings of 1000+ young people across London.
HILDEGARD: VISIONS - TÊTE À TÊTE - 1 AUGUST, 2019
Hall 2, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London, N1 9AG
What connects a 12th century female polymath from Germany with Haitian Vodou and Neurodiversity? Taking the extraordinary life and work of Hildegard von Bingen as its starting point, Hildegard: Visions is a sensory opera-happening that transports its audience through a journey from intimacy to ecstasy.
Like Hildegard’s cosmic visions, perceptual disorders such as the newly discovered ‘Visual Snow’ present those who experience them with new realities. Using voice, sculptural light installation, electronic soundscapes and ideas of ritual from across cultures and times, the piece invites us both to reflect on these connections, and to discover our own, singular realities.
This R&D happening drawing together three original commissions from a diverse range of composers continues Ebizie’s research into performative installation and ritual connected to the Neurophenomenology of Perception.
