Lafawndah constructs and deconstructs her compelling new live show on stage at the Montalban Theatre.
As music makers, we might strive to create spellbinding, life-changing live performances, but struggle with the gap between ambition and reality. How can we translate the atmospheres we create on record to experiences in physical space?
Lafawndah’s presentation at Loop seeks to answer these questions by giving us, effectively, the best of both worlds: a compelling live performance by an artist at the peak of her powers, followed by a look behind the curtain at the techniques, processes and people involved in putting her show together. Lafawndah and her team, including frequent collaborator Nick Weiss (Teengirl Fantasy), will show us how they combine lighting, musical arrangement, stagecraft and close collaboration with their front-of-house sound engineer to bring her physically intense and otherworldly music from the studio to the stage.
