Code Red! Code Red!

Concept and installation: Dr. Gil Mualem-Doron, Dance: Lya Abdou Issa (AKA BlkDimondDance), Music: Liam King [AKA 7kid] & Soma Taylor-Patel (AKA 8SZN)
Sat 14 - Sun 15 May 2022

Code Red is an immersive room installation that includes a live dance performance.

The work conflates biodiversity and cultural diversity and the disastrous effects of global warming, climate change, especially in the global south. Initially commissioned by Sussex Wildlife Trust, the immersive installation simulates kelp forests, similar to the ones off Sussex shores and in other places around the globe. In contrast to this magical and tranquil environment, the sound and dance move the viewers from there to the space of the environment protests, the inspirational speech by Barbados prime minister Mia Mottley at COP26 and the ensuing climate catastrophe.

The performance is part of Queer/in/g nature by the Socially Engaged Art Salon featuring video works, photography, and digital art. The exhibition will be open daily from 11 am-5 pm and entry is free. For more details please see this website:
