Alive in Berlin is a 50 minute multimedia performance that mixes spoken word poetry, prose and one-person 'dialogues' - with projected images and new music compositions. It offers glimpses of autobiographical detail that merge and collide with imagined histories, some whimsical and some much darker.
Writer Jenny Powell has worked with award-winning composer Kerian Varaine, artist and independent film-maker Phoebe MacKenzie and actor and animateur Simon O'Connor.
Powell, the sole live performer is supported by a battery of four busy video projectors and six amplifiers, which give the piece a greater sense of size and complexity than is often the case with conventional solo performance.
The vast space of the venue allows for dynamic shifts of scale, from tiny, condensed images to expansive projections that fill the entire room.
