Ray Lee: Points of Departure

Sun 23 May 2021
Loading performances

Against the backdrop of night, take a walk through the atmospheric industrial landscape of Shoreham Port and be dazzled by otherworldly sound and light installations.

Due to the yellow weather warning for high winds, for the safety of everyone, we have sadly had to make the decision that Ray Lee’s Points of Departure is cancelled today, Sunday 23 May. We offer our sincere apologies, bookers will be contacted.

Wondrous machines emerge from the darkness to a strange but haunting effect - monumental kinetic sculptures that seemingly defy gravity as they spin and whirl in an endless dynamic dance. 

In this one-of-a-kind event you are treated to a viewing of Ray Lee's spectacular sculptures, brought together for the first time. Towering metal tripods sing out a hypnotic siren call, while lights whirl in mesmerising orbits of colour. A series of giant towers holding suspended speaker cones gradually swing higher and higher until each arm soars up over the heads of the audience - ringing with electronic tones that create a transfixing harmony of pulsing drones. 

The structures sing an alien song, a sci-fi symphony that points to a future departure to other worlds and another universe.
