Stratum is an exploration of landscape and mans effect on it. The piece explores the influence of the North Nottinghamshire terrain, and how the environment has been physically sculpted and carved through unnatural means. This arrives at a salient time, with exploratory fracking drills in application under the ancient Sherwood Forest, and the closure of Thoresby Colliery, the penultimate deep coal mine to close in the UK.
This live performance is a sharp journey into geometric abstraction. Utilising kinetic colour spectrums with bold white light, it places naturalistic elements with hyper-real digital glitches. Fused with a sound track of field recordings, and accompanying score from producer Jimmy Power, Stratum promises a driven and bold performance.
Performed Live at Splice Festival 2017.
Stratum is set to tour unusual spaces in the UK and Europe from summer 2017.
