Fri 14 July, 8PM | £10/7 – Facebook event link
London’s Tolerance Manoeuvre are joined by Filippos Tsitsopoulos for a unique multimedia performance titled, No Matter How Different We Are We Have Both The Same Landscape Inside Us, where masks, music and projections conspire to create dialogues between a person and instruments on the stage.
No Matter How Different We Are We Have Both The Same Landscape Inside Us
Filippos Tsitsopoulos is introducing his new body of work in his Let’s Go! performative series. Inventing an imaginary reality between himself and the objects surrounding him, Tsitsopoulos questions the very nature of those objects. What if an object could talk or breathe or see? What would they say and what should we say to them? Using theatre as an interlocutor, this ongoing performative work becomes a metaphor for social and emotional struggles and our ability to overcome them. No Matter How Different We Are… was presented at Hull Capital of Culture UK 2017 as part of the ReROOTed Exhibition programme back in March.
Filippos Tsitsopoulos (Athens, 1967) is a painter, installation, video theatre and performance media artist who has worked in the field of interactive theatre installation art exploring the limits of performance as well as in painting since 1990. His practice engages the spectator in a new theatre or rather a system of including theatre as a catalyst of our daily life concepts. Filippos lives in London and Madrid. His work has been exhibited worldwide at venues including The Serpentine Gallery, The Bluecoat, Frieze Art Fair London, Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin, Tate Modern and CGAC de Santiago de Compostela.
A unique combination of guitar, cello and trumpet, Tolerance Manoeuvre furrow a particularly British seam of post-rock previously mapped by the likes of Talk Talk and Bark Psychosis, but with their own, highly-personalised take. Managing to fuse stark yet luscious melody with ornate orchestration, the trio meticulously unfold and reconfigure space and structure to create a beguiling tapestry that is simultaneously dense and intimate.
