Nichola Scrutton - Night Vision
Residency 5 - 9 June 2023
Nichola Scrutton is currently producing a body-of-work, Night Vision, through 2023. Night Vision is a contemplative, dynamic, vocal sound work that crosses territory between concert, theatre, live art, and visual art.
At its core is a large body of text written during the night over a two-year period, lying down in a semiconscious state - a very different starting place for Nichola as a composer and artist. Several iterations are underway - a release, a performance and a film, each offering a different way in which multiple narratives can emerge through and beyond the text.
The Tramway residency is focused on producing additional visual/sound materials for the film – a poetic documentary weaving together live performance and archive footage.
