Ben Judd’s new work ‘Apart, We are Together’ concentrates on the boundaries between dramatic performance and liturgical drama, through staging a set of live encounters followed by an immersive three-channel video installation. The work references the performative ‘pose slide’ genre of magic lantern projections, developed in the late 19th century. The performers activate surfaces of projection and reflection, suggesting a ﬂuctuating state of perpetual becoming in which participants are suspended between points of departure and arrival. The video installation becomes another surface of encounter; both works suggest a unifying experience but also question the relationship between immersion and a more self-conscious, knowing state, as performed by both actors and participants of ritual. The doors will be closed during the performances, please arrive in good time to be seated. Due to our limited capacity booking is recommended. The Monday performances are un-ticketed, but please book your tickets here for Thursday performances.
With magic lanternists Mervyn Heard and Jeremy Brooker.
