Event description

Description

Overcast - A work in progress performance as part of The University of Surrey Doctoral College Conference

How does it feel to be inside a cloud? Overcast is an intimate performance that explores light, perception and mood in conditions of obstructed visuality. The performance immerses the audience in different lighting states and challenges their perception by simulating the experience of being in clouds. This new work in progress encourages visitors to look around before the edges of space are blurred. Overcast plays with and investigates how we distinguish between surface and depth, how light and darkness impact how we might feel and what colour has to do with all of this.

The performance is the result of the second stage of my Practice-as-Research PhD on uncertainty in theatre in the dark and considers visual obfuscation through ideas revolving around clouds, haze, and mist. Through the performance, I invite the audience to reflect on the significance of light (in their experiences in performance) and the different atmospheres that might emerge when we cannot see clearly.

Technical details

Overcast is an intimate performance for 4 audience members at a time. It will be shown in Studio 2 at the Ivy Arts Centre (please see campus map). The performance lasts 20 minutes and will run multiple times throughout both days of the Doctoral College conference. The performance is free but as capacity if very limited, advanced booking is advised. In case of remaining tickets manual registration will be available on each day of the conference.

Please be aware that the performance contains moments of total darkness.
