Blink Social- ‘Underdrome’

This weekend Blink attended the first night’s performance of an amazing hybrid show at the Roundhouse in Camden. The Roundhouse’s artist in residence, Darren Johnston, created an event blending modern ballet, the London Contemporary Orchestra, projection art and a white cloaked choir. The result, called ‘Underdrome’, had a distinct horror movie feel with a strong Japanese aesthetic. Possibly one of the most thought provoking pieces that we have seen, in one of our favourite London venues.

White was the colour statement of the evening, surrounded by the deep, dark interior of the venue. We thought the set was stunning, particularly the flocks of origami birds.

The central set piece was this ghostly tree, or was it a cloud?

We were bewitched by all of these hand folded birds
