THE SPIRIT IN THE DUST

"I cannot wait to see it again!"

"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.
