Deep In The Garden of Light
“The sight of London to my exiled eyes
Is as Elysium to a new-come soul.”
Inspired by the aesthetics of underground dance culture, Deep In The Garden of Light is both a feeling and a figment of your imagination. It will be set to a live electronic score and use Christopher Marlowe’s Edward II as a base text through which to explore ideas around urban loneliness and queer identity.
Marlowe’s original tragedy will be melted down and recast into a cityscape of hi-octane genderfuckery, post-internet persona play, classical dance, sweaty pop-choreography and haute couture fashion.
Elysium never smelt so good…
