LUXE– Big Burns Supper

Luxe at the Big Burns Supper was an incredible two person visual and narrative part performance, part installation. Designed to pose the question of ‘what is reality?’ 

Cleverly enacted with audience participation, and impressive visual graphics, the audience were made to feel part of a simulation. The show, Luxe, accompanied you through a series of experiments to challenge your lucidity and break down your understanding of past, here and now and future.

It was an outstanding performance which you feel you will never see again. It was the weirdest thing I have ever seen that I totally understood. We all agreed on the way out that it had left us with a sense of wonder. And lots and lots of glitter in our hair.

AS ABOVE SO BELOW – Nithraid 2015

As Above So Below is a piece of an outdoor interactive performance art commissioned to the Young Stovies for Nithraid. The show was created by us and explored the esoteric correspondences of the ‘as above so below’ adage put forward by Hermes Trismegistus and re-worded by Isaac Newton:

Tis true without lying, certain and most true. That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only thing. And as all things have been and arose from one by the meditation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.
Issac Newton
Philosopher

After an intense collaborative effort and mighty non-linear thinking we came up with a visually stunning piece that featured a platform with two metallic pyramids, a unicorn, rainbow smoke bombs, themselves clad in white as magi or officiants wearing sunglasses, a time capsule and a balloon release. 

It is easy to assume that the result might be somewhat eclectic.  But as the figures moved in the wisps of coloured smoke, the transparent fabric of their capes swirled with them creating an illusion of a grand esoteric ceremony unfolding on the banks of the river Nith – the future meeting the past, the cosmic forces joining human spirit and the material echoing the ephemeral.

NIGHTTIME COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT - BIG BURNS SUPPER 2018
