Promo for Teffradot

TEFFRADOT

by Rebecca Horrox

at Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia, Wales

start point here

 

A new opera set in motion by a walking audience in the mountains of Eryri (Snowdonia). it relays a modern myth set around Lyn Idwal, the lake at the bottom of a glacial valley.

 

Through song, eight characters, Sundew, Butterwort, Ceffyl Dwr, Dragon, Prince, Rock, Pen-Bele God of Death and the Teffradot emerge from the water, ice, rock, flora and fauna voicing stories of shape-shifters, immortals from the other-world, the eternal and ephemeral beings of Cwm Idwal. 

 

Traditional welsh melodies are cut-up, rearranged and transformed, echoing the scarred, shattered rock face. Instruments of a bygone era side by side with new, join eight voices to echo in the mountain, to symbolise a state of pure eternity.

THE ONEIRONAUT

by Joel Cahen

at Chalkwell Park, Southend On Sea

start point here

 

We spend 11% of our existence dreaming, a full month of each year, that's more time than we spend eating. While the body lies still the mind wanders, free of limitations of time and space. This story poses the possibility that a conscious dreaming mind could share other people's real waking experiences.

 

 

The Oneironaut, a dream traveller, reawakens perpetually into a dream. Confusing memories and reality, he tries to use dream logic to return to his sleeping body. As he occupies your consciousness, he guides you through the park and through to his realisation of the somber truth.

THE HERO WITH SEVEN FACES

by Joel Cahen

at Watermans Art Gallery, Brentford.

start point here

 

Chronomotive describes the moment in the present when you realise you are the future self you projected from the past.

 

it is this reflection that reveals the chronomotion, a trajectory in time between two distinct events: 

the vision and its revision. 

 

As you walk around the Watermans Art Centre you follow the astronomer Charlie Green; Trans-man Michael Dillon; archeologist Gertrude Caton; the king of Britain Cassivellaunus; and worshippers of the god Chronos. All weaved in an abstracted poetic reality.

 

Some Say That Dreams Are Chronomotive.

The Places, The Situations And The Unfamiliar Faces That Appear When The Mind Is Unhinged On Physical Reality, Do They Belong To A Different Time?

 

 

Are They The Faces You Would Have Met Had You Decided To Do One Thing And Not The Other?

 

Duration: 35min

Commissioned by Watermans Art Gallery

for Networked Bodies Weekend
