Melos III & Vertical 5 | 23 April 2016

Vertical+Melos - Square Colour
Automatronic and St Laurence Church present a durational performance collaboration between movement artist Alexandra Baybutt and composer Huw Morgan.

A live movement performance exploring the spatiality of breath, cellular forms and permeability. Engaging the shifting contours of the performer, her materiality and navigation of the environment, this solo work will inhabit the space of St Laurence’s Church, excavating fragments of another world with a non verbal, non linear language and presence. Over five hours, this form will generate its inner world in parallel to Huw Morgan’s installation for organ + electronics, Melos III.

The Vertical series was initiated in 2013 by visual artist and designer Moi Tran and movement artist Alexandra Baybutt, with theatre director Ria Samartzi. Joining this iteration is artist Pascal Ancel Bartholdi, documenting the performance in this unique space, built in 1968.

“Melos” (melody, arc) is an ongoing series of site-specific works of sustained duration for organ+electronics created by Huw Morgan. This is its third iteration: further versions will be created for venues in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Berlin later this year.

The performance lasts five hours and is free admission – you are encouraged to come and go as you please. At 5.30pm a concert of new music for organ+electronics will follow, given by members of Automtronic (Huw Morgan and Michael Bonaventure).
