Commonsounds: Touching the Void took place at the amazing Commonwealth Institute building, transformed into a hub of art and performance for a couple of nights in July 2011.

I was commissioned to create some art pieces and visuals for the staging of Harrison Birtwistle`s opera “Orpheus Elegies”, choreographed by Dane J Hurst.

Inspired by the building’s transitional mythology, the visuals for the Orpheus Elegies have been filmed mainly inside the building, while exploring its own cavernous underworld. Dwelling into the unknown, stumbling upon various processes, encountering textures within the building, have all been recorded and translated to Orpheus` experience of the underworld.
