The Locus Solus Residency
For this lunchtime talk we welcome Mutiny a new public art organisation inspired by the potential of bringing new stories and experiences to audiences across the UK and Europe.
Mutiny (Sophie Mellor, Simon Poulter and Marcus Romer) are currently undertaking a two week residency at Pervasive Media Studio, developing their new project 'Locus Solus'.
For this lunchtime talk, Mutiny will talk about iterative practice and shared devising working within the context of making new physical and digital work. They will discuss live theatre, design, YouTube unboxing videos, augmented reality and making things for public spaces. They will be joined by leading AR specialist Nicolo Carpignoli, who has been working with geolocated ar.js.
During their residency at PMS, Mutiny will be working with playwright Roy Williams; cultural consultant Lara Ratnaraja ; Stefan Kazassoglou and Garry Haywood from Kinicho; and Nicolo Carpignoli to research and develop Locus Solus. After this R&D phase, Locus Solus will go will go out for testing nationally before being developed as a large scale touring project.
This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
