Bringing together a selection of artists whose collaboration defies geographical co-ordinates, brand new production Aviatrix takes a microscope to the now fragmented landscape Amy Johnson saw from above.
Creating sound worlds within each track, vivid sensations from video and the live presence of a performer the ensemble wield the three-dimensionality of their borderless imaginations to uncover personal stories of navigating the things that divide us.
Aviatrix is an Amy Johnson Festival Commission created and performed by 9T Antiope (Iran), Quds Art Films (Palestine) and Ensemble 52 (UK).
3rd – 10th August @8pm (no show on Friday 5th and Sunday 7th August)
Tickets £10 / £8. Book tickets at Hull Box Office.
Alfred Gelder Street
9T Antiope are Paris-based Iranian artists Sara Bigdeli Shamloo and Nima Aghiani. 9T Antiope’s main focus is on experimental music, using layers of acoustic instruments and electronics, combined with mesmerising vocals and lyrics.
From tiny fragments to huge landscapes – the narrations of an alien world and its inhabitants which 9T Antiope have envisioned put their listeners in a shivering trance. Their latest album Syzygys (2015) conveys elegant modernity with a cold tribal touch.
They are currently working with Flaming Pines a global and connected label that produces artists whose work combines synthetic ambience with natural environment.
9T Antiope’s latest album is available to download at https://unperceivedrecords.bandcamp.com/album/syzygys
