Performer EmpressStah is showcasing her latest work for the first time at this year’s SPILL Festival. This year, it becomes an annual festival, alternating between Ipswich in October 2012, and London in April 2013.
Audiences should expect interactive 3D animations, video mapping projections, colour changing inflatables, couture costuming, gravity defying performance and an eclectic soundtrack.
Since SPILL Festival of Performance was created by artist Robert Pacitti in 2007 in London, it has achieved national and international recognition from industry experts and culture vultures alike.
The festival, which will be in Ipswich from October 31 until November 4, is known across the world for supporting radical new work.
‘Empress Stah in Space’ will be performed on Friday 2nd November and Saturday 3rd November at 9.30pm at the Studio Theatre, Jerwood DanceHouse, Ipswich.
Among the 46 emerging artists who were chosen to showcase their innovative work as part of a National Platform, is Grace Schwindt. In her piece 'Tenant', the stage becomes a family home, starting with the story of her grandfather's lodger Mrs Schumacher in Berlin during the Second World War.
