ADRIFT (2016)

‘Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions...
It is therefore necessary to be suspicious of those who seek to convince us with means other than reason, and of charismatic leaders: we must be cautious about delegating to others our judgment and our will’

Primo Levi - The Truce (1965)

ADRIFT is an installation piece for a walking choir. It was commissioned by Fruit for the Apocalypse, to be premiered as part of InTransit Festival, during the Refugee week by V&A Museum in South Kensington, London, 20 June 2016. The world premiere was done by the community choir ‘Sing to Live, Live to Sing’, in the tunnel that connects South Kensington Underground Station with V&A, Natural History Museum and Science Museum.

The aim of the piece is to raise awareness for the refugee crisis of recent years. It is a symbolic journey-walk, where groups of people sing and perform together as they wander on different routes as if they are lost, holding a text written by Holocaust survivor Primo Levi.

Approx. duration: 30-45 mins.
