D-Fuse’s live Sonic Cinema performance Latitude [31°10N/121°28E], is inspired by the notion of drifting through the urban land + soundscapes of China, following the emotive qualities of spaces that surround us. Fragments of conversations, crowds, journeys, lights, deserted space + architectural forms are mixed in a unique live performance tracing a multitude of paths, identities + influences, representing the everyday life of cosmopolitan China.
Shot during a 3 month research period in China [supported by the British Council and the Arts Council England], D-Fuse has explored the rapidly changing urban environments of Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chongqing together with local artists. These journeys have been documented utilizing a wide range of audio and visual techniques, and the materials are drawn from this form the basis for this performance.
Latitude [31°10N/121°28E] is a live audiovisual performance with a duration of 45-70 minutes and is designed to be performed across multiple screens.
