What lurks beneath our seabed? A plug. Earth's belly button. From whence we rose and now must return, to pull. Drain the excess. Before the sea swelling swallows us. A blip ventures below, braving the absurdities of life pressurized as their subconscious seeps out into the deep. Through experimental vocal techniques, live soundscapes, and anarchic improvisation, blip explores the power of the human voice against the cataclysmic wave of noise.
blip is a devised and interactive work by award-winning performance artist Isaac Hooper. The debut of a new art form, 'Cyborg sound poetry' blip galvanises embodied technology, Dada, and clown on an adventure into our collective subconscious.
Seize the means of vocal production and sing the body electric through this immersive experiment to the depths of your imagination.
“An extraordinary extrasensory experience that will blow your mind. blip is a deeply unique and exciting new solo performance from the brilliant brain of Isaac Hooper.”
