BOX OF BIRDS – performance installation

_DSC9381 copy sml cropped

.

A collaboration with photographer Anne Ferran.

Inviting audiences deep within the nooks and crannies of the performance site, BOX OF BIRDS is a mythic late-night journey through the shadows of the human psyche – probing the power of the past, life on the outskirts, and distortion of memory in an immersive melting pot of large-scale photography, dance and live music.

Fusing Anne Ferran’s acclaimed photographic trilogy of 1940’s psychiatric patients (INSULA: 1-38: Box of Birds – exhibition) with a live dance installation, BOX OF BIRDS conjures a labyrinth-like domain where other-worldly fashion and immersive sound design intertwines with movement and select audio visual readings of the legendary German philosopher, Frederich Nietzsche.

‘In the confines of the back blocks of Carriageworks, we hear the words of Nietzsche embedded in Vic McEwan’s overarching soundwork with its cosmic and industrial resonances, birdcalls and woodwind warblings… Tess de Quincey has worked the spaces of Carriageworks perhaps more than any other artist, to the point where it’s impossible for me to observe parts of the building without sensing her performing presence. This immersive and evocative work added yet another layer to that palimpsest’.
