Originally commissioned by Metal as part of Liverpool Provocations, Shrine is a new solo dance piece devised and scored by Forest Swords, performed by Owen Ridley-Demonick and choreographed/costumed by Carmel Koster.
Shrine is Forest Swords’ first standalone dance piece, premiered in Liverpool in January 2016 at the Black-e. Much of the show’s score is made up breath and body sounds, processed and sequenced to create a claustrophobic sound world of texture and physical rhythm, before gradually unfurling towards euphoric climax.
Shrine’s score is released via Dense Truth, available on limited edition 12″ vinyl, digital download and streaming.
“Shrine” was performed at Korzo in The Hague, Netherlands on Friday 13th May.
