'deconstructing voices' returns to Liverpool
03 October 2011
On Sunday 16 October, LJMU Screen School’s 'deconstructing voices' will return to Liverpool as part of the Bluecoat’s Chapter & Verse Literature Festival.
Originally conceived for Liverpool’s ‘Light Night’, and following on from a performance this summer as part of the ‘Not Part Of’ festival in Manchester, the School and all the performers are looking forward to returning with a bigger and better performance back in Liverpool.
'deconstructing voices' is a unique collaboration in sample culture, mixing live poetry with VJ, screen and digital technologies. The words - all based on the theme of 'place' - are read live by the poets but have also been, and are during the performance, filmed and mixed (in a style influenced by the rave culture of the 80s and Russian Constructivism) with music and images. No two performances are ever the same but each is a unique way of performing poetry which honours the language and intention of serious poets but also engages the audience in a vital and imaginative way. The performance brings together a unique blend of expertise from established artists and performers working alongside emerging creative talent.
Judith Jones, Director of the Liverpool Screen School commented:
"The Screen School is really pleased to support ‘deconstructing voices’, especially as it returns to Liverpool. The project has grown from small beginnings, conceived as a one-off performance, to a whole new collaboration, involving staff and students from across the School. The enthusiasm and dedication of all the staff and students involved has given ‘deconstructing voices’ an amazing momentum, and we anticipate it growing from here, possibly to an international scale."
