Friday 5th may 2017, 6pm – 10pm
The Light of Movement and Sound By Luigi Vescio & Andy O’Connor
Live sound-scape construction, contemporary dance and light manipulation meet in Andy and Luigi’s multifaceted work, which seeks to bring to light the flux between the contemporary and the everyday, whilst exploring the interconnectivity of sound and movement. There will be three performances of the work over the course of the night.
“Luigi and I have been friends for years, and I think that in many ways this friendship drives our relationship as artists. We are respectful of one another, while also willing to challenge each other. Our openness and honesty both creatively and personally allows us to create our best work together. The Light of Movement and Sound is a development of our creative relationship, intended to be an honest window into how we work, and we don’t want to hide anything from the audience. We’re working with some fascinating instruments and equipment in real-time to experiment with interactions between sound, light and movement. We’re so thrilled to present this work in the beautiful city of Geelong” Andy O’Connor.
The 2017 event theme is THE SOUND OF LIGHT
2017 Programme coming soon.
Geelong After Dark is Central Geelong’s annual night of arts: transforming the streets, laneways and venues of Geelong’s CBD. Explore the city and be surprised by a jam-packed program of exciting and unique pop up performances, installations and arts experiences. It’s on for one night only and this year’s theme is the The Sound of Light.
Luigi Vescio says, “I’m excited to see the development of our ideas as they manifest over the coming weeks leading up to the performances. We’ve curated a bunch of ingredients that have a lot of potential. Light will act as both a response and facilitator of these explorations to at times amplify, focus or drive creative control. The performance presents carefully defined ingredients in an installation setting where we are free to improvise and play with these events. Andy and I will experiment with these elements as individual entities that require constant negotiation. How will the shared agreement of our artistic vision dictate the compositional direction, and in doing so challenge our artistic histories, interests and assumptions of form?”
