July 23/24 Underground
Wonderfeel Festival, Netherlands
Underground returns for a season at Wonderfeel Festival in the Netherlands performed by percussion ensemble Slagwerk den Haag. Previously performed in the Netherlands, Belgium, Japan, Mexico and Australia, Underground is a sculptural percussion work by artist Rosemary Joy and composer David Young.
Part-installation, part re-enactment, Spooky Action at a Distance is a terrifying utopia where live video interacts with fictional landscapes and vice versa. It is unsafe, without oxygen and potentially intensely fun.
Do those who object to contemporary art prefer community parades? Howl is a celebration of 15 significant moments in art history. A ritual procession starring a sculpture of Captain Cook, thousands of sunflower seeds and a killer whale named Tilikum. A requiem that is unquestionably queer, arguably dangerous and probably obscene. Performed by three women. Scored by Mozart himself.
