‘How is it that you know of this city? It is only now that I have dreamt of it.’
Still night – Bristol, inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, casts the city in the leading role.
The show begins as a seminar on Bristol, seen through the eyes of a foreigner.
The city slowly drifts into the distance of our imagination as, in near darkness and surrounded by luxurious sound, we find ourselves in a corner of the gardens of Xanadu, considering the empire of the Great Kubla Khan.
Created and performed by Gemma Brockis and Silvia Mercuriali. Sound design in collaboration with Lewis Gibson.
