Reinterpreting of the Stations of the Resurrection
11 April 2017
Here Comes The Sony, a reinterpretation of the tradition of the Stations of the Resurrection which encourages meditation on the resurrection appearances of Jesus, will be installed for the first time under the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral during Eastertide.
The 12 monitor video and sound installation comes to the Cathedral on Wednesday 26 April at 7pm.
This installation follows Stations of the Cross, 14 video works which will be projected onto the circular Henry Moore altar at St Stephen Walbrook church throughout the night on Easter Eve, Saturday 15 April.
St Stephen Walbrook, designed by Christopher Wren in 1672, accommodates the first classical dome to have been built in England, and was Wren's prototype for St Paul's Cathedral. This architectural relationship provides a physical and interpretive context for the premiere of this new work by Mark Dean and Lizzi Kew Ross & Co, curated by Lucy Newman Cleeve.
On Wednesday 26 April, Being Here, devised by choreographer, Lizzi Kew Ross and the dancers, will be performed in the middle of the circular stage. This combines images of human presence, comfort, hope, loss and regret implicit in the Resurrection stories with the shifting qualities of colour and sound formed by the installation. While not enacting the narratives, the dance performance is an interpretation of the moment, producing a sense of a shared journey and progression through time and space and enabling the audience to curate the tension and the distance between the installation and their own responses.
