Alyona : [its making and performance]
Alyona is a 1-hour continuous set, presented as a live performance of Poetry, Hip-Hop and Immersive Sound. The aim is to engage audiences through performance and documentation by offering unique and unrepeatable live events where the use of technology is transparent and visual. Audience perception of ‘liveness’ is a central component of the performance. We actively combine unlikely juxtapositions of place, material and style. The text for this performance was written as part of a wider and ongoing project called Edwin, the ambition of which is to use various literary and musical forms to plunder, reveal and cleanse the psyche. Alyona is a beautiful little girl spattered with snow. Edwin is an anthropomorphic fox dripping with blood.
