Event Details

This event is the second in a 2-part series that grew out of a collaboration between Mark Dean (artist), Lizzi Kew Ross (choreographer) and Lucy Newman Cleeve (curator). It features the premiere of Here Comes The Sony, a 12 monitor video and sound installation by Mark Dean that re-interprets The Stations of the Resurrection, which emerged to encourage meditation on the resurrection appearances of Jesus and will be installed for the first time under the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral during Eastertide. Being Here, devised by choreographer, Lizzi Kew Ross and the dancers, will be performed in the middle of the circular stage formed by the placement of the television equipment. Being Here combines images of human presence, comfort and loss implicit in the Resurrection stories with the shifting qualities of colour and sound formed by the installation. While not enacting the narratives, the dance performance is an interpretation of the moment, producing a sense of a shared journeys and progression through time and space and enabling the audience to curate the tension and the distance between the installation and their own responses.

The earlier event, Stations of the Cross, takes place at St Stephen Walbrook on 15th-16th April. Tickets can be booked hereStations of the Cross brings together 14 video works by Mark Dean that re-interpret the Medieval tradition of making a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the path Jesus walked to Calvary on the day of his crucifixion. The videos are not literal depictions of this journey. They rely upon Dean’s trademark appropriation of iconic film and video footage and music, to introduce visual and aural puns that behave as the generators and interrogators of meaning within the work, setting up a series of disputations between the different elements being sampled. They will be projected onto the circular Henry Moore altar at St Stephen Walbrook throughout the night on Easter eve. Audience members are invited to stay for the duration but free to come and go, as part of a vigil event that culminates in a performance of A Prelude to Being Here by Lizzi Kew Ross and Co, and an optional dawn Eucharist.

St Stephen Walbrook, designed by Christopher Wren in 1672, accommodates the first classical dome to have been built in England and was his prototype for the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral. Wren designed his churches to be ‘auditories’ in which everyone present could see, hear and feel themselves part of the congregation. Stations of the Cross and Stations of the Resurrection function in a similar way to the Mystery Plays, providing a contemporary re-interpretation of the story of Easter. The audience is an integral part of each event that, like the Visitatio Sepulchri liturgical dramas from the 10th - 11th centuries, are firmly placed in local contexts and intended to involve the whole community.
