The project features spoken word performances from Taylor Burch inspired by avant-garde icon Jean Cocteau’s performance in Jean Cocteau s’adresse… à l’an 2000 and production from Kerridge, and will be released on Regis’ Downwards imprint.
The duo will also launch an audiovisual show to accompany the project in collaboration with London-based filmmaker Daisy Dickinson which is described by Downwards as “a visual, speech and sound based piece”. The show “will utilise large pieces of semi-transparent fabric, running floor to ceiling in height and suspended at different depths”, explains the label, “covering the stage and immersing Samuel Kerridge in audio reactive live-mixed visuals.”
