Tom McCarthy with Shelly Knotts & Alo Allik
The world premiere of new techno-text works by the acclaimed Booker-winning novelist, with live improvised visual and sonic disturbance. In partnership with East London publisher and record label Test Centre.
Shelly Knotts & Alo Allik
Alliks self-teaching AI synthesisers and Knotts shuffled and live-programmed vowel-sound library converse across the uncanny valley.
A techno-utopian public address accelerates into emotional slurry to weird fanfare and archival flashbacks. Absurdist performance by the media artist and author of The Unspeakable Language Device.
Costume, hoverboard, cut-up beat poetry, beats and electric guitar coalesce into an elaborate visceral mythos on the dark history of Iggy Pop’s Lust for Life.
Drone asks, how can anxious bodies live as part of this system of astonishing destruction? A new work of sound and spoken word with Giles’ signature ‘bleak humour and tender fury’.
