Nathan Jones, Henningham Family Press, Kerry Yong, Kerri Meehan & Sophie Von Cundale, Marcus Orlandi + screening of Buckminster Fuller's film Modeling Universe hosted by Tim Clare with DJs Disco of the Sheep & Goats (& other animals)
Music, art, literature and film commune for an evening of performance and print, as we throw a four-hundredth birthday party for the King James Bible with a difference.
Written and performed by Nathan Jones (Mercy), Noah’s Ark is a poetic re-telling of the biblical tale made entirely using footage from the North West Film Archive, and scored by Carl Brown (Wave Machines).
Co-curators the Henningham Family Press will be donning Geodesic Domed spectacles to follow Buckminster Fuller on an exploration of the Garden of Eden, kicking off with a screening of his film Modeling Universe. They’ll also be joined by seven guest collaborators, contributing original broadside posters featuring the seven days of the creation story, to create a man-powered print production line.
The Henninghams will be accompanied by musician Kerry Yong, presenting covers of Terry Riley’s A Rainbow in Curved Air and Messiean’s Quartet for the End of Time on casio.
Kerri Meehan & Sophie Von Cundale will be performing The Last Word, an ongoing project taking the form of an absurdist magazine.
And Marcus Orlandi will be performing 3:16, a performance lecture theorising parallels between the bible narratives of Creation and Redemption and wrestler Steve Austin’s 3:16 character, charting its significance to culture at the time and its importance to the World Wrestling Federation universe.
Hosted by Tim Clare.
Co-curated by the Henningham Family Press
