Before the Termination of a Flight

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Performance presented by the Borough Road Gallery at London South Bank University.

British artist David Bomberg was a soldier during the First World War.

Deprived of access to his primary art-form, painting, he took to writing poetry about his experiences in the trenches.

He still drew scenes from his life as a soldier, but these are distinctly different from his poetry and do not show the horrors of the war.

To mark the centenary of the end of the war, this performance explores three of Bomberg's poems from the war and examines how different art-forms can express different emotions and experiences.

The performance will consist of three sound pieces mixing electronic music and ambient soundscapes with Bomberg's poetry and three correlating movement performances, all created by current London South Bank University students.
