In this short performance, the breaths and gestures of people in the room seem to be echoed in changes to the everyday clutter around them. Lamps, cups and other objects also play back traces of those who are absent. You can choose to observe these events as they unfold or influence them further by hooking yourself up to the set. How will this encounter feel to you? As a trace memory, an augmentation of your body or as something uncanny – a visitation of sorts?
Trace has been devised and presented by Sarah Angliss (composer and roboticist) and Emma Kilbey (theatre maker) and was developed at the Pervasive Media Studio, Bristol.
The performance lasts 20-25 minutes and will be repeated at intervals throughout the afternoon. Catch the start at 12pm, 12.45pm, 1.30pm and 2.15pm.
Presented as part of Digbeth Delights, an afternoon of avant-garde performances, workshops and talks across Minerva Works to coincide with Supersonic Festival. Join us 12-5pm for brutalist composition, contemporary improvisation, punk protest art, and poetic robotics.
Admission is free
