SHAMANIC is the brand new production by AniMotion’s Maria Rud, a visceral collision of live painting, music and architecture, on a grand scale. Following on from her acclaimed collaborations with Evelyn Glennie (which premiered at NMS Grand Gallery and toured to USA, China and Europe), the Russian born artist is taking the music in a new direction with a new show which sees contributions from Fay Fife (The Rezillos), Kid Congo Powers (The Cramps, The Bad Seeds), Martin Metcalfe (The Filthy Tongues), Mike Baillie (The Skids), Chris Agnew (The Rezillos) plus actress Rula Lenska and Edinburgh’s DJ Dolphin Boy.
With atmospheric music especially composed for the performance, SHAMANIC will be a dynamic performance of live music backing Rud’s own energetic and dramatic painting, which will be simultaneously projected on to the striking architecture of Edinburgh’s Old College Quad. Images and sounds created and constantly evolving throughout the performance, transporting the audience into sensual overload through a live union of sound and vision.
The music created for SHAMANIC is a soundclash of 60s garage, alternative rock and contemporary electronica, laced with a punk spirit. That defiant DIY spirit runs through all aspects of the show’s development.
Collaboration is at the core of SHAMANIC. Edinburgh based AV specialist War Productions Ltd is not merely the sponsor, but a collaborative partner. Thanks to this sponsorship, SHAMANIC will use the latest State-Of-The Art technology, enabling both the art project and the business
The Edinburgh festivals might be over, but SHAMANIC promises a spectacular event to brighten the capital at the end of September, if only for one glorious night!
