Event Details

Forest Collective joins forces with Rubik’s Collective for Metropolis New Music Festival 2015 to perform a multi-layered program spanning dance, film and new music.

Artistic Director of Forest Collective, Evan Lawson shares his arrangement of ‘Moonfall’ from The Mystery of Edwin Drood, a melancholic novel left unfinished by Charles Dickens just prior to his death and adapted for stage and screen in the 1980s. From unfinished 19th century novels to the world of technology, Swedish composer Marcus Fjellström combines three ingredients from his childhood (cartoons, computer games and nightmares) to write, compose, create and animate the story of Odboy and Erordog (2012). Experimental, dark and filled with intrigue, the story follows a boy and his dog who embark on a black and white adventure.

Also on the program are two contrasting world premieres: Elanor Webber’s new dance-music film The Texture of It based on her 2014 live performance and a brand new work from Evan Lawson entitled Orpheus and the Cave.
