Tales of an ancestral voyage told through spoken word, music and cutting edge technology. Prepare to go on an AfroFuturistic journey, passing through Antarctica to an unknown destination.

Eritrean-born artist Lula.xyz (birth name Lula Mebrahtu)is amongst a handful of musicians leading the way for the evolution of music using an interactive midi controller, MiMu gloves, which translate simple hand movements into complex musical compositions. Co-pilot of the sonic voyage is Linda Rocco.

This event is delivered by independent curator and researcher Linda Rocco as part of a wider programme marking 200 years since Antarctica was first sighted. 'Celsius' forms part of Mansions of the Future’s Lincoln Live season and Antarctica In Sight – a UK wide cultural programme of activity supported by the UK Antarctica Heritage Trust. This series of talks, workshops and performance will explore the groundbreaking intersections of arts and STEM subjects with a focus on climate change and the uniquely precarious position of Antarctica in today’s sociopolitical climate. The week long programme will feature contributions from artists Rhine Bernardino, Lula Mebrahtu, Aidan Moesby and Josefina Nelimarkka.

This project is part of Mansions of the Future’s 'Lincoln Live' programme March – Septmber 2020 (Season extended in response to COVID-19). Departing from Lincoln’s rich entertainment and theatre history, 'Lincoln Live' features new commissions which exist at the intersections of disciplinary boundaries. The season is a celebration of performative ventures that stand resolutely marginal to both the history of English theatre and the often exclusive, disciplinary rhetoric of contemporary performance art.
