Shadow Libraries: UbuWeb in Athens
16-18 MARCH 2018
What is UbuWeb? Is an archive capable to propose a different sort of art history? 3 days of talks and workshops in order to explore this and other shadow libraries.
People Like Us will be part of an UbuWeb conference in Athens later this month. It will include artist talks and group discussions, workshops and a WORLD PREMIERE of a work in progress version of our new single screen a/v performance The Mirror. Yes, we’ve not quite finished it yet (!) but this is too good a platform to not use since UbuWeb is our internet home. Tickets for The Mirror: http://www.sgt.gr/eng/SPG2098/
More info on the conference and how to attend here: http://www.sgt.gr/eng/SPG2018/
People Like Us will be doing an artist presentation, a workshop about process, and a performance. All info is at the above url. Continue reading
People Like Us play Sounds Like This Festival in Leeds at Hyde Park Cinema on 20 March 2018, doing a combination from four different previous performances, celebrating (at least!) 25 years of People Like Us.. More info here: https://www.soundslikethis.co.uk/
We are pleased to announce a new audiovisual immersive cinema performance by People Like Us called The Mirror, performed from March 2018 worldwide.
The Mirror is a live a/v performance which splices together movie snippets with unique sample-based music exploring the masks that we wear represented through the lens, using parallel narratives across the screen to depict an ever-changing stream, rather than a singular, fixed being, narrative or moment in time.
A feat of research and craft, this new work is a spellbinding inquiry into editing and juxtaposition; a collage one can unthread allowing the viewer to discover hidden stories through familiar images. The soundtrack is performed live, made up from hundreds of preexisting songs, as well as particular sounds from the original film clips.
