The Wave Epoch (Haroon Mirza, GAIKA, Elijah, Jack Jelfs) - 24th May 2018
24 MAY 2018 – 2pm & 7pm BRIGHTHELM COMMUNITY CENTRE & LIGHTHOUSE, BRIGHTON
Lighthouse invites us to imagine what culture will be like 2000 years in the future, through a unique creative collaboration between Elijah (grime DJ/Producer), GAIKA (Artist/Musician), and artists Haroon Mirza and Jack Jelfs.
Devised and created earlier this year at the world’s largest scientific experiment – the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (LHC), the performance uses artefacts and electronic components left over from experiments, in an on-stage installation performed live to the public for the first time at Brighton Festival on 24 May 2018.
The Wave Epoch presents a fictional scenario into the future in which LHC and CERN have long become redundant and rediscovered by a future civilization. Exploring how our perception of purpose-built locations evolve over time, the artists look to ritualistic tendencies of humankind and question how these landscapes may be reinterpreted.
