connection rituals with Mark Reid Bulatovic (Spring 2020 – present)

During lockdown, Mark and I have been exploring how a shared experience can manifest itself over a four hundred mile separation through our ‘Connection Rituals’ project. We actualised this by spending twelve hours in ecologically similar locations performing rituals that connected to our individual landscapes’ solar, lunar and tidal points of interest in combination with moments of synchronised, symbolic and cyclical tai chi movements. Each performance was audio recorded for the full twelve hours. Currently we are working on translating the ethos of this project into an album for release in Spring 2021.

Seeking the Aether with SHOAL (Autumn 2019 – present)

Seeking the Aether is a brand new collaborative project exploring the elements that make up our natural environment. Combining music, dance, physical theatre and multimedia, the show will challenge, provoke and explore our attempts to understand and control the natural environment – from ancient ritual to scientific discovery.

VIRTUALLYREALITY‘s Spring-Summer 2019 series of events

VIRTUALLYREALITY’s second official season of events is more diverse than ever before, celebrating the raucousness, intimacy and hybridised nature of much contemporary music and performance. VIRTUALLYREALITY SS19 features music for instruments, electronic sets, dance, physical theatre, performance art and audiovisual performances across four dynamic evenings that allow differing artistic communities to collide.
