What the dog said to the harvest
June 24 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
A groundbreaking call for climate justice drawing on opera, dance, spoken word, immersive sound and film.
This isn’t a story about plastic straws or bags for life; this is the tale of how we got here. This is what the dog said to the harvest.
Tracing 400 years across multiple narratives, we confront the era of human displacement.
Combining the immediacy of live performance and the intimacy of installation, what the dog said to the harvest is an invitation to solidarity, highlighting the ripple effect of Western-centric behaviours on silenced communities and drawing on stories from across the UK, Lebanon and Syria.
Lisa Minerva Luxx weaves poetry, fiction and memoir alongside critiques of Europe’s foundational philosophies. The inclusion of verbatim illustrates how the climate crisis has long since arrived for Middle Eastern communities and the Global South and leaves us asking how we can build towards a more progressive future across borders.
Jasmin kent rodgman’s installation and score blend sound art, contemporary x electronic music featuring field recordings, vocals, electric guitar, synths and percussion, experienced via live performance and 360° surround sound.
The work is an immersive promenade experience. Audience members will be free to move around the space as the work unfolds amongst and around them.
Post-show Q&A with creators on Sunday, 25 June, after the 7 pm show.
