Delaney Davidson - Ship Of Dreams (New Zealand)
20 Nov 2018 - 24 Jul 2019
Delaney Davidson brings his latest Magic Lightbox installation, Ship of Dreams, along with his carnival barker’s voice, avant-garde sensibilities and genius vision.
Using his unique and compelling live music as the soundtrack to his own short films, woven in the style of David Lynch, Bella Tar and Murnau, Delaney transports us into a flickering realm of Grimms fairy tales, Expressionist cinema, Brechtian epic theatre, forgotten values and lost stories.
Set in Bavaria, Serbia, Romania, the Black Forest, and the swamps of England, Davidson re-envisions the fables that define our morality, blending past and future into a time outside the modern age in this fabulous zigzag quest for the stories of our day.
Delaney has set up his show with an incredible cast, including members of Hamburg’s esteemed Thalia Theatre, radical photographer Miron Zownir, underground legend Reverend Beatman, long-time film collaborator Chris Martin and emerging playwright and actor Hester Ullyart.
An extraordinary, out-of-this-world opportunity, you will kick yourself if you miss it.
