Remix the Cinema

  • Penarth Pier Pavilion The Esplanade Penarth CF64 3SU (map)

"Take a film, disassemble its video and sound tracks, use those images and sounds to create a new montage a sound, performing it on stage, in real time. This is Remix the Cinema."
An immersive experience combining live music performance and cinema screening Remix is the brainchild of Italian artists Alberto Casati and Luca Acito of Action30, an art-philosophy collective which draws inspiration from the cultural ferment of 1930s Europe.

The event at Penarth Pier Pavilion on 20 May 2018 started with an open workshop with the artists offering an introduction to Action 30 and hands-on experience of live AV editing. To open the first screening - a series of close-ups of actress Renee Jeanne Falconetti from Dreyer's 1928 film 'The Passion of Joan of Arc' - Parry & Glynn created an avanspettacolo called 'Platforms for the Human Personality', involving Schumann settings of Heine and live readings from Paul Tillich, while a paper wall was destroyed by the audience and turned into a pyre.  

We were delighted to co-host the event with the Italian Cultural Centre Wales and Snowcat Cinema
