  • Media OS 5.1 by Partial Facsimile

    23 March 2017

    7:15pm – 9:25pm

    £10/£8

    In association with Strangelove Festival Partial Facsimile MEDIA OS 5.1 is a multi–media performance in 5.1 surround sound.  It discusses the overconsumption of digital information and its entertaining, yet beguiling effects on human behaviour. It also addresses the consequences that an oppressive society has upon the modern day worker.

    The performance of contemporary music and synchronised moving imagery encompasses vocals, guitars, bass, piano, synthesizers, drums, cello and digital sequencing.

    The ensemble will perform among the visual projections so that the focus is on the moving imagery and the spatial sound.

    The audience will be immersed inside a surround sound system and encouraged to interact with the performance using their personal information technologies (Smartphones/Tablets).

    10 films have been specifically developed for the individual songs, and informed by their lyrical content. Each one of the films is unique, but collectively they tell a story.

  • Film at Fabrica: Ali: Fear Eats The Soul (Queer Dreams season)

    21 April 2017

    The rain is unrelenting and the middle-aged woman needs shelter, so she steps in to a bar playing Arabic music. A handsome young Moroccan man asks her to dance, and from this unexpected proposition, an electric connection is sparked.

    Evoking the work of queer auteur Douglas Sirk in both its aesthetic and its astute social commentary, Fassbinder explores love and desire across the boundaries of age and race. Ali being played by the director’s own romantic partner El Hedi ben Salem imbues this masterpiece film with further queer significance.
