Thank you to the experimental music ensemble Tone Camerata for the invitation to create the visual projections for the first public performance of their work “Gestures”. It was a rewarding experience to work with this talented group.
Gestures is inspired by Newcastle, it’s environments, and it’s people. The show will re-imagine Newcastle as concentric circles; oceans; bush; industry/coal; suburbia; bus network; inner city cafe and university culture. Through the use of sound, movement, and visual projection this show guides the audience through each circle, ultimately moving to the centre: the audience. Themes of symbolic ritual are explored where the repetition of day to day life is expressed in music and movement.
