Plus the next episode of Kepla, De Forrest Brown and Chris Boyd's new video, voice and sound works.

Tom McCarthy

The world premiere of new techno-text works by the acclaimed novelist, with live improvised visual and sonic disturbance. In partnership with East London publisher and record label Test Centre.



Shelly Knotts & Alo Allik

Allik's self-teaching AI synthesisers and Knotts’ shuffled and live-programmed vowel-sound library converse across the uncanny valley.




Jennet Thomas

A techno-utopian public address accelerates into emotional slurry to weird fanfare and archival flashbacks. Absurdist performance by the media artist and author of The Unspeakable Language Device.




Alexis Milne

 Costume, hoverboard, cut-up beat poetry, beats and electric guitar coalesce into an elaborate visceral mythos on the dark history of Iggy Pop’s Lust for Life.
