Burning Bright

Category : Current Work, General Info, Processions · No Comments · by December 8, 2016

Burning Bright is a night-time procession for street, town & festival sites. From the forests of the night and the sinews of the heart comes a scrapyard menagerie of illuminated beasts & creatures accompanied by musical towers, performers, lights, & pyrotechnics. Forged in the wild places of the human imagination, Burning Bright combines high intensity animation of beasts & puppets; live music and sound and dazzling, atmospheric pyrotechnics. This is a bestiary that roars out from the page and onto the streets in a constellation of energy and delight.

Tatterdemalion Grove

Tatterdemalion Grove is a world to wander in day and night, a wasteland garden of kinetic sculptures and animated detritus, for green or empty spaces, festival sites, abandoned car parks and urban wastelands. The installation features the Umbrella Tree, an absurd mechanical contraption of motor driven umbrellas and the Hurly Burly, a mobile sound sculpture, sonic amusement and junkyard delirium.

Inside the grove we will be a menagerie of small synthesizer and sound making devices; a collaboration with Farmer Glitch, creator of bespoke hand held electronic instruments. These will be hanging from carousels & structures and with both portable & static speakers we will create an ever changing live soundtrack & audio playground. The Grove will involve workshop and interactive elements, for example culminating in a noisy Wassail and communal performance every evening.

Skimmity

Skimmity is a processional delirium of wild music, mobile towers & sound sculptures, pyrotechnics and performers. Drawing on traditions of noise in ritual and celebration, free jazz, street music and sound art, Skimmity brings a right riotous racket to your streets.

Strange noises fill the air: the skronk of the saxophone, the thunderous funk of percussion, the parping of horns, hooting of sirens, clanging of bells and wafting columns of coloured smoke announce the arrival of Skimmity…”
