THE SPIRIT IN THE DUST

20 January and 23 May 2024

AFRIT NEBULA's piece featuring Japanese Butoh-influenced dancer YUMINO SEKI is back this year in two further performances in Hastings and Brighton, following its acclaimed debut at the Kino-Teatr, St Leonards, UK, in September 2023.

THE SPIRIT IN THE DUST


"A wild, experimental and exciting event!"
(Hastings Online Timesfull review here)


"Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper."

– Albert Einstein



Japanese Butoh-influenced dancer Yumino Seki performs with original music played live by Afrit Nebula and interactive projections and staging by Mark French.

Based on an original concept and musical composition by Elaine Edwards with text by Ken Edwards, the piece imagines a world spirit conjured from darkness into an exploding theatre of light. Moving images are projected onto a translucent kinetic screen which provide a multi-dimensional setting for the dance. The whole performance builds to a mesmerising climax before resolving itself into the musical and visual ether.

 

THE SPIRIT IN THE DUST lasts approximately 50 minutes, and is prefaced with a 30-minute overture performance by Afrit Nebula.
