Impermanence Presents: Crystal Zillwood & The House of Strays
Crystal Zillwood’s Evolutio is a 15-minute solo which zooms out and looks at a distant our history and considers where we humans are right now and were we are potentially heading to.
These Hands is inspired by observations of those working on the land and with machines on a dairy farm in mid-Devon. The audience will hear the voice of June Palfrey and Dennis Palfrey throughout the performance. June is 78 and has farmed on Morebath dairy farm for 65 years. You will also hear the voice of Dennis Palfrey who was born, raised and has lived on Morebath for 70 years. These Hands is a celebration of the everyday, set to recordings of those who work the land, considering their history in my body, as well as the craft and work that goes into the creation of this piece.
The House of Strays was created by Artistic Director Fionn Cox-Davies. He and Florencia Martina, one of two Associate Artists, came together to make Verses: a series of vignettes each differing in personality, woven together like verses of a song. Composer Marcos Mezza came to the work which now sits in a live sound score. “There is no perfection only life” – Milan Kundera
