Live performance and film screening of 'Red Route Raves on Empty Roads' by Das Hund
  • Ground floor, Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth University

Save event

Please join us for a special welcome to a new cultural season at Peninsula Arts, which will also include a live performance and film screening as part of the Plymouth Art Weekender.

In a series of poetic texts performed with a drumbeat backing track and psychedelic film projections, Das Hund (Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski) reflect on their concerns about the place of the artist in a contemporary society that increasingly seeks to commodify creativity. Taking words and inspiration from activist Nicholas Saunders 1975 counterculture guidebook ‘Alternative England and Wales’, they journey through towns and cities, reimagining radical ideas that are returning to the popular imagination. Additional poetic reflections on the homogenisation of art practice, and the use of technology, set the scene for a visionary exploration of the modern world.
