Ghost and John
Last Christmas, a new telescope was sent into space and is now wandering in the dark and mysterious galaxy - is this how we, as artists, feel when we go deep into our consciousness in search of what makes us feel alive?
On this multi-sensory journey, we navigate the dilemmas of politics, sickening racial attacks, and the widening gap between the ‘successful’ and ‘starving’ artist figure, moving with and through the audience.
Together they look at what creative exchange and artist alliance means in a world where the arts are under threat, and how to project a healthier future in the post-pandemic world.
This dynamic promenade piece will merge dance with soundscapes & projections, transporting you to a place of calm that strives to build connections through art.
