Bodies Tilted

Commissioned and co-produced by Southbank Centre for Meltdown Festival.

BitterSuite invites you into a universe for your senses, calling you to surrender and hear music through movement, your imagination and your body.

Set to a brand new live score using voice and breathwork to reference the Christine and the Queen’s discography, audience members will be sat, blindfolded and guided one on one through the music by a dancer for an intimate, somatic journey, radically altering the gig going experience.

Audiences are welcome to take part either as an Experiencer or as a Witness:

Experiencers are blindfolded and paired up one-to-one with a guide for an intimate journey through music using movement, touch, taste and scent.

Witnesses explore the choreography as it unfolds and attune to the sensory response produced by witnessing another’s experience. This role is one of curiosity.

The choreography is led by Eileih Muir, and the experience is soundtracked by a vivid, playful score created by Stephanie Singer.

BitterSuite have previously been commissioned by and showcased work at venues including the Royal Opera House, Finnish National Opera House, Brooklyn Academy of Arts, Roundhouse Theatre, Arcola Theatre, Wilderness Festival and The Other Art Fair.

The creative team includes artists and experts in the fields of music, art, theatre, movement, poetry, somatic practice, food, perfume, psychology and neurology.
