An evening showcase of radical international artists, @Disturbance has been programmed with both live and digital viewers in mind by Ugly Duck’s in-house panel of producers, artists and curators, which will take place on Tuesday, November 30th.

About

Performances from Anthedemos, Nwakke, Puer Decorum and Kelvin Atmadibrata will be staged and livestreamed alongside video screenings and digital art from Laura Lynes with Billy Leach, Llewellyn Mngun and Jake Wood. This programme is being supported by Arts Council England and audiences can either attend in person or watch the livestream from anywhere in the world.

@Disturbance support diversity, and under-represented bodies and voices in the arts. It intends to challenge power dynamics, offering a platform for new representations of genders, bodies, identities and sexualities.

The Ugly Duck organisation is known for repurposing unused London spaces as well as supporting underrepresented voices and groups within the arts.

 

More about the artists:

Anthedemos (Live) : Creating live soundtracks via instruments and objects, Anthedemos draws from mythology, magical realism, poetry and medieval symbolism, re-enchanting the everyday world, as cinematic elements are filtered through a live lens. For @Disturbance, they will present an updated version of their hybrid work Herosynthese

@anthedemos

Nwakke (Live) is a London-based artist, DJ and musician working with dance, video and performance. They are involved with QPOC performance events in London and recently performed at Cafe Otto, ICA and Pussy Palace. For @Disturbance they will present their ongoing project, Death Understruction; a blend of music, choreography and video, the piece explores forms of ceremony and invocations of peace, truth, love, acceptance and co-existence.

Puer Deorum (Live) is a London-based multidisciplinary artist working with documented performance, costume and sculptural prop-making. For @Disturbance they present their new project Pingala’s Sequence based on a concept by the poet and mathematician Archarya Pingala in ancient India (BC), who first discovered patterns in nature and the universe. @puer_deorum

Kelvin Atmadibrata (Live) is a performance artist originally from Jakarta, Indonesia. He thinks of his work as recruiting superpowers awakened by adolescent fantasy working primarily with performance, often accompanied by and translated into drawings, mixed media collage and objects compiled as installations. Kelvin will revisit his performance I'll be a Good Boy in which he explores the expression, desires and fantasies of homoerotic online behaviour.

Laura Lynes in collaboration with Billy Leach (Video) Laura Lynes is a British-Hungarian writer and interdisciplinary artist working in collaboration with sound and performance artist Billy Leach. Together they will present a new video artwork featuring two digital characters from life simulation computer game The Sims.

Llewellyn Mngun (Video) is a dancer, choreographer and DJ originally from South Africa. @Disturbance will screen Resilience, a choreographic video artwork exploring the complicated story of a South African born LGBTQI+ activist raised in the country’s strict Setswana culture.

Jake Wood (Video) is interested in debunking the idea of fitness and exercise which he explores through his use of the gym and physicality. This is portrayed through performative, sculptural, and installation-based work, using humour and slapstick comical gestures in the public domain. For @Disturbance, Wood is screening No PAIN! No CHAMPAGNE! A video performance using unusual places as stages - in this instance a gym. This will be shown in the screening room alongside a sculpture made by the artist.
