Lift Music!

Lift Music!

(Performance Piece, 2015)

Prodding at the borders between punk-rock and theatre, blurring boundaries and pulling shapes in the space between.

 

"Lift Music!" was a collaboration with Ray Gun (a band that Jess sings in and Eo plays bass in). Together, we performed a gig in the lift of Turner Contemporary. The gig lasted the duration of the lift ride (32 seconds). The gig did not start before the lift doors closed and did not continue after they had re-opened. It only existed in the liminal space between the floors. However, whilst in that space it was as raucous, as messy, as immediate as we could muster. A clattering, pulsing, hidden box moving through the building.
