Workshop @ European Souvenirs in Warsaw

Light Surgeon Christopher Thomas Allen has been invited to be part of the artistic team running the “European Souvenirs” creative workshop in Warsaw, Poland from the 27th – 30th of August. He will be one of several artists who will be contributing their skills as part of the development stages of an exciting new live cinema project commissioned by the European Cultural Foundation and the most excellent ZEMOS98 from Spain.  This innovative project brings together a group of young media artists from across Europe to make a new collaborative work that explores issues surround nationality, identity and migration through the remix of public archives and the creation of original electronic music.

This cross-cultural, collaborative, audio visual project was developed with Doc Next Network and will culminate in a new live cinema performance that will be premiered at Imagining Europe, on Saturday, 6 October 2012 at the renowned cultural space De Balie in Amsterdam. From there it will go on to tour different countries across Europe and beyond. The resulting performance promises to “shake up our minds and our prevailing imagery of the places we live in.”
