Outside Inside Out is a dance theatre piece staged in a sound and light installation. The space is conceived as a sort of instrument and comprises a forest of elasticated strings that create sound and are animated through dynamic lighting. Dream worlds collide with reality in a series of exterior and interior spaces: a forest, a house, an open door and a window.
The piece is a sequence of short stories with twisted connections; a work of magical realism that weaves together dreams and reality in a world of sound, light, space and vibration. Characters' depressions and anxieties manifest themselves in physical changes and reverberations in space, which in turn affect their moods and movements in a dynamic feedback loop.
Outside Inside-Out was the inaugural show of the black box ‘Exfed Theatre’ in Harringay’s Warehouse District. The performance was a dance theatre work, staged in a sound and light installation designed by artist Jack Wates. The space was conceived as an instrument comprised of translucent screens and a forest of thick elastic strings that were animated though dynamic lighting.
A live soundtrack of minimal psyche–rock was provided by the duet Marion Andrau and Mad-kid-Library. The set design evolved into the piece Watch Sound Hear Light Play, an interactive sound and light installation developed by Jack Wates and Thomas Blackburn for the Brighton Digital Festival.
