To launch this season’s twilight ritual, created by Philip Brophy in collaboration with lighting designers bluebottle—pop by to experience the Neo-Tokyo Terrasound Cosmophony each-and-every night—we are excited to bring to you Philip Brophy’s Stadium at MPavilion for one night only.
Stadium is a live music performance of solo drums and showgirl dancers. The concept of the piece is to present a quasi-orgiastic celebration of rhythm staged theatrically within the mock pyrotechnica of ‘the rock gig’. An almost cartoon-like staging unfolds, with Philip bare-chested and adorned with long flowing black metal-dude hair, flailing away at the drums, flanked by two exuberant explosive dancers. No words. No guitars. No other visible instruments. Just a set of skins sandwiched by skin.
6–8pm: Refreshments and a special soundtrack curated by Philip Brophy
