An immersive performance which blends film screening and viewing, ambient sound, live digital art and artist-audience conversation.
This immersive, multi-media event, blends film screening and viewing, live digital art and bespoke soundtracks with interactive conversation. Drawing on Mohammed Ali’s projects of recent years, and his collaboration with Warwick’s Dr James Hodkinson, it showcases how this approach to art can be used to explore the experiences of migration, faith and identity in complex societies, engaging minority communities as co-collaborators and co-producers, capturing and re-telling their stories in the process. In so doing we not only help share their stories with wider audiences, though also preserve their legacy in an engaging and meaningful way, helping to raise their profile and pride in their heritage.
The event will appeal to diverse communities (Black, Asian and Muslim audiences), community activists and leaders; faith leaders; local government representatives; educators; the film-going arts-loving public; community arts and urban arts followers and practitioners and youth arts groups. By engaging the audience on the night, we will also show how live responses can be woven back into the performance spontaneously, modeling the process of shared artistic production in the live moment of performance.
