SOCIAL AMNESIA - SOUTH BANK MASTER PLAN
created and performed in May 2016
by the NME for:
Pure Gold Festival Launch
South Bank Centre, London
The piece was devised through the course of workshop sessions, wherein participants undertook research, discussions, live-composition and improvisation exercises and training. The creative efforts endeavour to address issues related to cultural memory, urbanisation, public policy, architecture, physical space and sociability etc.
The guided-improvisation-based output featured a wide spatialisation (spread through the Clore Ballroom), intense itineration, audience-interactivity, an overall emergent behaviour and, of course, flexible instrumentation.
