- 52–54 Kennington Oval, London, SE11 5SW
Orchestra of Destruction
Saturday 30th of November
A powerful collaboration between explosives artist Aoife van linden Tol and composer Jaydev Mistry.
This site specific work, performed for one night only. Jaydev’s composition will be interwoven with explosions at close quarters by Aoife in an intimate and dangerous yet spectacular audio-visual experience.
Jaydev’s composition is constructed around the latent frequencies that exist within Ovalhouse as well as recordings of Aoife’s explosions within the theatres and is inspired by the theatre’s radical history.
The event is part of the demolition party season which not only celebrates the end of an era as the Ovalhouse theatre prepares to close its current location in Kennington this winter ahead of its relocation to brixton in 2021. Artists presenting this season have been invited to destroy parts of the building as part of their show and Orchestra of Destruction is no exception.
