MULTIMEDIA PERFORMANCE NEW RITUALS: AÏSHA DEVI FEAT. ASIAN DOPE BOYS + PAN DAIJING
BARBICAN CENTRE Silk Street EC2Y 8DS London
Clon presents New Rituals at the Barbican, featuring two ecstatic multi-media performances making their London premieres: Aetherave and Fist Piece - which use electronic music and visual art as the basis to explore identity and spirituality in the post-digital age.
Aetherave is a newly-commissioned performative, visual and sonic work. At the heart of the piece are the rave-like sounds of Swiss-born Nepalese-Tibetan musician Aïsha Devi, based on the ancient incantations and hi-fi beats of her new album DNA Feelings (Houndstooth). Asian Dope Boys’s visceral dance stylings and the grotesque yet sacred imagery of Chinese artist Tianzhuo Chen provide a harmonic visual counterpoint to Devi’s sonic explorations.
In Fist Piece, Berlin based Chinese artist Pan Daijing explores the unsettling states of femininity through choreography, visuals and sound material from her 2017 release Lack 惊蛰. (PAN Records). Her live performance at the Barbican will also feature guest dancer Gregori Homa and video contributions from Ekaterina Reinbold. The resulting work takes the audience on a multi-sensory journey that’s simultaneously tender and fierce.
New Rituals is a new project by hybrid art and new media studio Clon lead by curator Estela Oliva, who return to the Barbican following a sold out audio-visual double-bill featuring Dasha Rush and LCC in autumn 2017.
New Rituals is supported by the Goethe-Institut.
