A result of a collaboration between the composer Joseph Currie (Faculty of Music), Alkistis Mavrokefalou (Ruskin), and Shelley James (Royal College of Art), Action Potential, a live installation piece, is taking place on the 24th November.
In a room simulating the human brain, poets, dancers, artists, musicians, and neurophysiologists will work together, responding simultaneously to some glass flutes, sculpted by Shelley James. The aim is to explore how the same objects can be variously interpreted through different media while creating an immersive, dynamic, and layered environment.
We are looking for a number of poets who are willing to write ‘live’ responses to the objects. These writings will, hopefully, will be projected onto screens. If you are interested in participating, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. The performance will take place between 12pm and 1.30pm on the 24th November, in the Faculty of Music. Participants will be needed from 10am.
