CONSTELLATIONS is an audio-visual exploration of humanity’s relationship with the cosmos. It is an immersive, sensorial experience that sits somewhere between the genres of electronic music and experimental theatre.
It was first developed with the support of Second Movement and premiered at The Cockpit, Marylebone, on December 5th 2016, with scenography by Lauren Tata. It is currently being redeveloped and will be performed at Quarter Block Party, Cork and Vault Festival 2018.
Inspired by images from the Hubble extreme Deep Field and video from the NASA space station as well as myths, memories and Clock’s own personal relationship with stargazing, CONSTELLATIONS traverses the boundaries of analogue and digital through sound, music and projection. It takes you wandering through the celestial depths of loneliness and intimacy where you will meet a long-suffering, slightly perverse star, a soft-hearted, depressive moon and a multitude of other strange and fascinating voices. These voices ask what extra-terrestrial bodies see and feel when they look down on us, and how our own perception of time and identity changes when we turn our heads to the night sky.
Clock uses a combination of the raw human voice, keys and electronics to transport you into a different dimension of time whilst stunning digital visuals from Dizzy Zebra (Chemical Brothers, Gorillaz, Lily Allen) are manipulated live and overlaid with the analogue scenography of Virág Pázmány. Bowls of water, milk, candy, soap and mirrors mingle with nebulas, moons and telescopic imaging, transforming the space and taking the audience on a journey into their own relationship with the night sky – and everything that it symbolises in our culture.
CONSTELLATIONS by Anna Clock & Lauren Tata, performed live at The Cockpit, London, on 5/12/16. This video is a combination of footage from the live performance and live video taken from the projection.
