Sounds from the other City RETURN once more. Along with Helen-Lois they will curate an all-encompassing event that aims to alter how you experience a conventional gig. By changing your situation & your vantage point performance art collective, Topical Jungle and the post-apocalyptic ways of Kazimers homegrown live band, Dogshow will take you into another dimension as you experience this event which aims to immerse both artists and audience to enter into the same submersive experience.
This will be a gig, this will be a party, this will be Sounds From the Other City in one building.
Dogshow - concoct a post-apocalyptic fantasy parade on rusty left-for-dead instruments, not a band to conform, or even stop to figure out who they sound like, their music is a well-travelled sound made from influences across the world, past present and future. Surrender yourself hypnotised and succumb as you are pulled so willingly into the vortex. AN ACID INDUCED STROLL DOWN A VICTORIAN SEASIDE PROMENADE. THEYLL RUIN YOUR MIND, BUT IN A GOOD WAY. Time Out
Topical Jungle winners of the Wolfganger Art Prize in 2012 are an art collective comprising of six. They engage in art practice both collaboratively and individually; exploring the relationships between the group and the individual, between reality and fiction, between natural and performed activity and most interestingly between audience and performer.
Helen-Lois - a curatorial duo once described as a powerful force of nature, akin to a cyclone in a sea of art wine. They believe art is no longer just about the static show in a gallery and question, what exactly does happen when all boundaries are put to one side and there is no longer one place to present art and one place to view it?
The audience becomes more integral than they ever have been. It is time to curate the audience and make their role as important as any. The audience are curators too. This event will bring together these multi-disciplinary artists into one event thats main focus is YOU, the audience. Dont just disappear into the masses. It's easy to take control when you're only surrounded by yourselves.
Don't just become an X IN A BOX!
Live Support and DJ support for this event Is TBC
