Join the EEFF at the spectacular Oval Space for a night of live cross-arts events, performance, film and live music celebrating the boundaries between sound and image.
PAS DE DEUX: WORLD PREMIERE
The World Premiere of a brand new live commission, featuring maverick electronic musician Luke Abbott (Border Community/Buffalo Temple), live visuals wizard Dan Tombs (Jon Hopkins, Fuck Buttons) and award-winning dance artist Lucy Suggate.
A true cross-arts spectacular, this live reinterpretation of Norman McLaren’s Oscar-nominated Pas de Deux (1968) features live dance, manipulated reprojections and a semi-improvised drone score. A spectacular portrayal of dance and movement, with a shimmering soundtrack, it is presented alongside the World Premiere of a series of new artist film commissions.
Produced by Kate Wilson. Supported by Arts Council England (See events page for the ACE supported Norman McLaren retrospective supporting this event).
FANTASTIC PLANET LIVE RESPONSE BY JC FLOWERS (ATP RECORDS)
JC Flower’s debut album was written and recorded in their practice room overlooking Canary Wharf, with its muted frisson of diminishing returns. This period was a strange one: planes fell out of the sky, media panic over outbreaks and epidemics continued, weather patterns and determinedly climbing rents drove the band to distraction.
Conveniently, they are a band so paranoid they can barely watch the film and remain conscious. We expect them to bring the necessary tension to this story of existential dread and revolutionary intrigue to their live response to a screening the science fiction classic Fantastic Planet, a psychedelic tale of a humanoid race rising up against their giant blue alien masters.
JOHN DORAN, LONE TAXIDERMIST + ROSS BLAKE: INTERFERENCE
Playing a selection of Middle Eastern, spunk funk, Electro chaabi, and space bangers, witness the records of DJ John Doran (The Quietus) being manipulated by Natalie Sharp (Lone Taxidermist), interfering via sharp splices, loops and effects applied to voice and analogue synths, all on the fly and in the moment. A tall man named Ross Blake will be adding his special brew of visuals to the mix.
12 – 2 AM
