Another of the city’s popular cultural events will play a part in tonight’s (19 May) LightNight Liverpool as it presents new artworks.
Liverpool Biennial will take over Liverpool Parish Church on Chapel Street with immersive and performance pieces by associate artists Frances Disley and Stephen Sheehan.
Kicking off this venue’s LightNight offering will be Stephen’s ‘Step Ladder’ – a durational performance in which he will climb and descend a ladder at the centre of a continuously revolving train, all to the rhythm of church bells.
The performance, which follows this year’s LightNight Liverpool theme of ‘Time’ by taking inspiration from “the indefinite continued progress of existence regarded as a whole”, will take palce from 7.30-9pm.
It’ll be followed by Frances’ ‘Charcoal Heather / Therma-Sphere Max’ – an immersive “expanded painting” which will see the artist guide visitors through a sensory journey of texture, smell and sound.
The performance, inspired by mindfulness techniques, will take place from 9-9.30pm.
‘Step Ladder / Charcoal Heather’ is just one of more than 100 free cultural exhibitions, performances, activities, tours and talks on LightNight Liverpool’s programme, and features in Your Move’s pick of eight must-see highlights.
Throughout the evening the after-hours events will be held in venues and open spaces around the city.
