Bassline Circus / SCENOGRAPHY / 2014/15

LIQUID SKY
Laser/Corde Lisse
Work in progress performed with
Bassline Circus Fusion/Boomtown 2014
&
 Conflux’s ‘Pitch‘ /85A,  The Briggait, Glasgow

A collaboration between circus artist Aedin Walsh, Lazer artist Jack Wrigley and scenographer Bex Anson. LIQUID SKY explores the interface between circus and technology, it is named after an 80’s cult sci fi movie that inspired the NYC clubbing scene. It is also a name given to a laser effect that creates a fake ceiling to mask the sky above.Together we are interested in finely tuned combinations of virtuoso acrobatics, laser pattern programming and optical costumery to create intergalactic landscapes which shift audiences perceptions of time and space.

Verbatim theater + Tech/circus experiments+Circus workshops+

Inspired by the worlds of Lego, Playmobil and Minecraft I created the backdrop and costumes for Bassline Circus’s real and virtual environments. A chorus of teenagers wrote and narrated the action while our circus performers drifted between real and imagined avatars. R&D exploring young people’s relationship to their screens.

Bassline Circus @ Fusion Festival June 2014

Kulturekosmos_01
Bassline returned for its 3rd year to Fusion festival. Set within an East German airfield this strictly vegetarian music festival is run by an a collective called Kulturekosmos- now in its 18th year. Non profit, no sponsors, no cops, and they don’t release the music lineup until the festival starts. Smart stuff.
