Substratum is a unique outdoor performance event, created for the walls of one of Bristols most iconic buildings, the Tobacco Factory. Combining acrobatic dance for vertical surfaces with projection mapped visuals to create an immersive, dynamic, multi-dimensional spectacle. Performers move between worlds walking, leaping and flying off the walls, while the surface of the building is transformed between element states: earth, water, light, and air.
As seemingly solid surfaces shift fluidly under foot – the work explores how a changing environment affects how we move within and experience our world.
Hypnotic and arresting by turns, a performance that explores boundaries; between bodies and bricks, between gravity and technology, between certainty and impossibility.
Substratum is a collaboration between Full Tilt Aerial Theatre and creative technologists Limbic Cinema, with an original composition by Ahmet Kenan Bilgic and Serkan Emre Ciftci (TR) Performed by an international cast and produced by Rowan Fae.
This is the first showing of this new work. Tickets for Substratum are free but there is an option to contribute towards the costs of the show.
