And The Birds Fell From The Sky (Il Pixel Rosso)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

Sensory deprivation is one thing, but this is something else entirely. Not stripped but replaced, our senses are taken on a terrifying journey to the world of the Faruq, a race who speak an impenetrable language and look oddly like circus clowns. This is art to question the world, to be seen, heard, felt, smelt, and acted upon. What starts as a mere vision turns into a story which has us responding to its every whim. Only two visitors can experience ‘And the Birds Fell from the Sky’ at once, and I recommend taking a friend, since this is the only way you will find someone who understands its enormity and dreamlike perfection. It is not for the faint-hearted.

C eca, 14 – 29 Aug, times vary, £7.50 – £10.50, fpp237.
