Live Cinema Performance, with D-Fuse

Latitude [31°10N/121°28E] is inspired by the notion of drifting through the city – a journey through the land and soundscapes of China, following the emotive and sublime qualities of spaces that surround us. As a survey of the city as unstable terrain, Latitude combines fragments of conversations, crowds, journeys, lights, deserted space and architectural forms, tracing a multitude of paths, identities and experiences in the urban realm. The music for this performance has been composed by D-Fuse’s musical director Matthias Kispert, making extensive use of real-world urban sounds and electromagnetic interferences from technology in public space, recorded at the locations visited.

During a 3 month research period in China [supported by the British Council and the Arts Council England], D-Fuse have explored the rapidly changing urban environments of Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chongqing together with local artists. These journeys have been documented utilising a wide range of audio and visual techniques, and the materials drawn from this form the basis for this performance.
