Holly Childs & Gediminas Žygus

Writer and artist Holly Childs and artist Gediminas Žygus fold critical reflections on ecology, memory and media theory into hybrid performances that combine bespoke choreography, dense spoken word, experimental film and intense electronic music. The starting point of their second album Gnarled Roots, released on Subtext label, was 9/11 — in the words of the artists a cataclysmic and highly theatrical event that has permanently reconfigured media, surveillance and capital on a global scale. Naturally, the result is an equally anxious and pensive work that explores binaries and duplication, puzzles and paradoxes, collapse and destruction.

Holly Childs & Gediminas Žygus perform on Saturday 9 April.
