'Up, up, up from this flat land,
Into the high land
That is our way...'

(Doris Lessing)

LIQUID SKY is a new piece of visual theatre exploring the interface between sonic art and aerial circus within a laser light scenography.

Titled as an homage to the cult 80s movie and a famous laser visual effect, the performance takes inspiration from Doris Lessing's feminist Sci fi novel ‘The Marriages Between Zones Three, Four, and Five’ about a matriarchal utopia.

Audiences are immersed in an otherworldly environment that sits between an AV Concert and a Live Art happening. Our ceremony beckons the physical and emotional possibility of transcendence, with offerings exchanged for a heavenly lift....

Awe inspiring feats of physical strength by aerial artist Aedín Walsh are paired with a 'Dark Wave' live set from sonic priestess SUE ZUKI whose throbbing synthetic hymns and mesmeric vocals will raise the congregation into a fizzing euphoria.

“A visual triumph and utterly charged” - Lorna Irvine
