DESCRIPTION

A rare opportunity to witness an improvised music and art event based around Shezad Dawood’s interactive sculpture, New Dream Machine Project. Building on the contemporary legacies of Beat Culture and the Moroccan art, this live performance by PRAED invites the viewer to experience an immersive sensory environment of light and music. Reflecting a key theme in Dawood’s practise, this evening event will contribute a new layer of experience and meaning to a piece that is already located in a complex and shifting array of cultural references. The event will also form the basis of the new film commissioned by Parasol unit, forming the second in a trilogy of films by Dawood to map the progression of the New Dream Machine Project as it moves into new cultural contexts.

PRAED are an improvisational group of musicians spanning Beirut and Paris, who perform worldwide. For more info about PRAED click here
