How does it feel to be inside a cloud? What happens when we cannot see clearly?

Overcast is an intimate performance for four people at a time, that explores light, perception and mood when we can barely see. The performance immerses the audience in different lighting states and challenges their perception by simulating the experience of being in clouds. The audience are invited to observe the space before it becomes blurred, to investigate how we distinguish between surface and depth and how light and darkness impact how we might feel.

Certain Ways

29th June, 2nd3rd & 4th July: 19.30 

Sam and Alex invite you to join them on a little journey. They will safely guide you into the woods, take you to the seaside and even underwater. And it’s all going to be in the dark.

Certain Ways is a sonic journey performed in total darkness guided by robotic voices. Devised in collaboration with sound artist and composer James Edward Armstrong, Certain Ways blends field recordings, musical compositions, and computer-generated voices. As Sam and Alex move around the space, sing, laugh, breathe, fight and make up, Certain ways experiments with the different possibilities of robotic voices. The performance attempts to draw our attention to what often remains inaudible, asking what counts as bodily as well as which bodies count.
