Eurydice 1995

A site-specific installation/performance in an enormous derelict Brixton warehouse.


This spectacular show incorporated fire, projected images, recorded text, a snake and an opera singer to explore the themes of the myth of Eurydice.


‘Eurydice is the limit of what art can attain: concealed behind a name and covered by a veil, she is the profoundly dark point towards which art, desire, death and the night all seem to lead. She is the instant in which the essence of night approaches as the other night’. 

(Maurice Blanchot)
