The Light Surgeons go out on tour this March for a brief stint around the UK before a London show on April 19th – they’ll be performing ‘SuperEverything*’ for the first time in the UK here:
09/03/2013 – WARWICK ARTS CENTRE – COVENTRY
10/03/2013 – COLSTON HALL – BRISTOL
11/03/2013 – STUDIO THEATRE – BRIGHTON DOME
12/03/2013 – THE SAGE – GATESHEAD
19/04/2013 – HACKNEY EMPIRE – LONDON
The ‘SuperEverything*’ performance is a mix of live music, visuals and performance, commissioned by the British Council and created by The Light Surgeons in collaboration with Malaysian artists. Filmed on location across Malaysia, it explores identity, ritual and place using documentary narratives to create an audio-visual portrait of the diverse cultural landscape of Malaysia and how our complex identities are connected.
This is live cinema performance exploded across multiple projections with an electronic score combining traditional South East Asian instruments, western classical compositions and field recordings. I’ve heard so much about this over the last year and finally it’s coming to London. Few do AV as beautifully and intelligently as The Light Surgeons, this will be something to experience and discuss later rather than the usual ‘ooh!, ahh!’ spectacles so many audio-visual shows seem to fall into these days.
