VIRTUALLYREALITY present two foursomes who play music, but also move, dance, sing, lip-sync and act. These are collectives whose practices extend far beyond the established realms of musical performance into physicality, performance art, multimedia and new means of listening.
SHOAL's opening set is loosely themed around lossy data transfer and the fallibility of the human body. Works by Dan Tramte, Michael Baldwin, MICHAELBRAILEY and Cassandra Miller view technology and bodies as barriers or filtration devices, music and text squeezing through them to be dismembered or reformed in transferral.
Bastard Assignments will perform new works by each of the performing members, Edward Henderson, Caitlin Rowley, Josh Spear and Timothy Cape. Expect the unexpected - devastatingly explosive vocal performances, instrumental music that lasts a lifetime, and werewolves.
