I Have Loved the Stars Too Fondly to Be Fearful of The Night

Concert or Performance

15 Mar 2019 to 17 Mar 2019 Once Only Event

In this immersive installation of improvised light and sound, a single human body becomes an abstracted focal point – a disembodied drishti – within an unfolding science fiction odyssey. The work explores states of transition and the synergy between light, sound and the body, offering audiences a meditation on time, perspective and the moment of death.

Developed through in-depth collaboration and a residency at the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Centre (EMPAC) in New York, Rachel Arianne Ogle, Luke Smiles and Benjamin Cisterne have created a transcendental experiment in design. In the performance an external feed of radio communications and cosmic chatter manipulates both light and sound in real time.

I Have Loved the Stars Too Fondly to Be Fearful of The Night is a choreography of perception. The audience witness a body in liminal space distorted by the media that surrounds it, becoming mesmerised by the hypnotic sensory experience of contemplation and transformation.

I Have Loved the Stars Too Fondly to Be Fearful of The Night is part of a double bill with Memoir for Rivers and The Dictator.

Presented by The Substation as part of Dance Massive 2019.
