Our Final Live Broadcast from Blockuniverse is Rory Pilgrim’s Sotware Garden

Today Saturday 3rd June Pilgrim will present Software Garden, a new commission for Blockuniverse 2017. 

This performance explores connections between technology, disability and care as a way of looking at larger political frameworks. Interweaving poetry, speech, song and choreography, this will be the first performance as part of a larger new body of work built on Pilgrim’s first experimental music album . U nfolding somewhere between Kabuki theatre, a pop concert and a political social space of action, this performance will attempt to bring together a variety of people from different ages, backgrounds, human and robotic, to propose the creation of an embodied system of care and kindness as a software garden. In collaboration with poet Carol Kalled, singer Robyn Haddon and dancer Casper-Malte Jorgensen.
