11th May 2007 — 30th November -0001
Cape Farewell presents a night of new songs, performances, artworks and information prompted by the urgency of climate change. The evening showcases Nature Songs, an exciting new collaboration between composer Tim Sutton and the sublime voice of Ade Omatayo. Siôn Parkinson sings five original songs accompanied by banjo and Daniel Edelstyn plays out a set of weather-inflected songs. In the interests of energy-neutrality, all performances will be unplugged. William Hunt performs new work Earth, Wind and Fire. Rhiannon Armstrong requests the help of others to illuminate an interactive globe-shaped costume. Tim Graves presents The Plight of the Waders, mapping the future landscape of climate-change London - when the Thames rises will your street survive? Adrian Lee invites you to vitalise the otherwise wasted energy from a 'stepper' machine. Bullet presents works by graphic artist Jody Barton. A 16mm film installation by Nick Edwards' returns us to the Arctic - a landscape no longer to be viewed as beautiful in the abstract, but rather as a battleground for our planet's survival. Max Eastley's sound composition Arctic permeates the space. Ready to engage in up-to-the-minute debate, Climate Scientist Prof. Mark Maslin of the Environmental Change Research Centre, UCL will be on hand. A pay bar will be open on the evening, come and join us for a drink. This night of events is curated by Kathy Barber, Vicky Long & Ali MacGilp.
