Shots In The Dark

SHOTS IN THE DARK is a new live film commission from Midlands based artist George Saxon. The performance features room height film loops containing carefully orchestrated hand drawn abstract and pictorial symbols and signs in relation to the body, projected towards four performers, who stand in the midst of the audience. The choreographed response of the performers actions in relation to the projected drawings are aligned to the shock of the corresponding optical sounds, that puncture the cinematic darkness. Performers and audience are immersed in an artillery battery of light and sound.

Duration approximately 20 minutes

Doors open 20:00 | Performance 20:15-20:35

Performers: Charlie Cosson, Courtney Evans, Anuja Damie, Alexis Garner. Production assistant Ryan Sehmar.

SHOTS IN THE DARK (2018) is commissioned by Vivid Projects and presented as part of Flatpack Film Festival’s Optical Sound strand. Supported by public funding through Arts Council England.
