About the Event
The Society is holding a unique Open Evening at St Augustine's Tower, Hackney's oldest, oddest building. They’re inviting you to join them - they'd like to help you awaken your own Inner Demon.
A site-specific interactive performance-installation by Don't Be Absurd, brought to St Augustine's after performances at GAS Station (ZU-UK) and the University of East London , with audio-installation by live artist, Sebastian H-W .
Merge with a strange crew of witches and demons, as these denizens of our cultural subconscious - drawn from the haphazardly documented Walpurgis Night traditions of European folklore - struggle up through the cracks in Hackney's modern façade.
What does it mean to be BAD in 2019? Did real evil die, somewhere on the other side of corporate self-improvement?
The Society of Satanic Spirits isn’t prepared to let it go just yet.
Don't Be Absurd make performance with a focus on multi-national/multilingual theatre, cross-cultural narratives, and placing the audience at the centre of a concept. Their work has been performed at Shoreditch Town Hall, LOST Theatre, the Streatham Space Project & VOILA! European Theatre Festival/Applecart Arts.
Project supported by Hackney Historic Buildings Trust, ZU-UK, University of East London & Anima Theatre.
