Tonight for your aural and sonic pleasure, Laurent Rodriguez will conduct as evening of beguiling sights and sonic exploration with Axolotl, charming you with his enigmatic and poetic imagery, tickling you with the ostrich feather that are his visuals and twisted humour. Together Laurent and Axolotl take you to lucid places you've never before conceived...
Laurent Rodriguez works with improvised audio-visual performance, the manipulation of rickety devices and imaginary operations peeking under the veil of daily things...
"Interweaving sound, movement and image in unexpected ways, Laurent Rodriguez presents the audience with absurd and dada-esque performances, enacted with beauty, humour, and poetic evanescence. With a range of influences going from experimental cinema to fluxus performance, to pull disparate ideas into new forms of interactive media, striking a peculiar balance between deconstructionist abstraction and primordial weirdness." - Cal Lyal
