LISA HALL

is an

INTERDISCIPLINARY

ARTIST.

She is based in LONDON. Focused on alternative methods of engagement and sound’s role in everyday life, her works take on the form of INTERVENTIONS, INSTALLATIONS and PRINTS which aim to highlight forgotten dependencies. Lisa has exhibited and contributed to a wide range of arts events and exhibitions including Folkestone Triennial, Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Cafe Oto, Resonance Fm, Framework Radio, Whitechapel Gallery, Speculum Artium and Whitstable Biennale.

Most recently she created a moving audio performance at the V&A Friday Late, sited on 12 models who moved through the museum.

BUBBLECAM is a playful exploration of online streaming and LIVE FEED possibilities. It is a partnership with Mike and Andie, a couple in Florida who set up the online bubble cam in their garden. It consists of an internet controlled bubble machine that can be activated and watched online. People from around the world visit the website to ‘blow bubbles’.

She partners with mike and Andie to create relays of this CAM, furthering the reach of this online request for bubbles. In each of the relay cams the audience are invited to participate in different ways, so as to explore the human impulse and reaction to this simple idea that has been captivating an online audience for over 10 years. Each relay cam explores what it is to be the live audience, the BUBBLE BLOWERS, the button pushers, those making anonymous demands through the internet and those affected by them.

For ONE OF US, the events guests will become the live audience, to discover how it feels to be watched.

I started ImmerCity in 2012 after university. The company is dedicated to creating immersive theatre that focuses on the relationships between characters and audience. I am particularly interested in how a performance changes our perception of space. Much of our work is written for a particular location. For instance we created a ghost walk for Holland Park, a witches seance for the basement of Babel Studios and an alien invasion for a car park in North Kensington.
“The Perilous Party” is being designed especially for the St Pancras clock tower. It was inspired by the idea of a Haunted House Party that is the central feature of the movie ‘The House on Haunted Hill’. It promises to be an evening of macabre entertainment and melodramatic spirits. I have always been a huge Agatha Christie fan, especially of her more spiritual detectives like Mr Harley Quinn. This show is an opportunity to combine a spooky murder mystery with an evening of games and movies. Audience interaction is one of the most joyful (if chaotic) aspects of immersive theatre and this is a wonderful opportunity for us to blend event with performance in a unique way.

WRITER

She is a ONEOFUS alum, having written and directed a short immersive play inspired by Elizabeth Fry and Ruth Ellis for ONEOFUS : WHITECHAPEL in 2012.

Her latest piece, DARLING, is an OPERA-THEATRE experience which invites audiences to help create the SOUNDSCAPE. It loosely uses the ghosts and ill-suited lovers of the 1959 horror film ‘HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL’ as a springboard for the story, and musically, the evocative, religious organ strains of FINZI’s choir music and unearthly harmonies of FAURE’S REQUIEM and ERIC WHITACRE.

She also has an MA in Writing for PERFORMANCE & PUBLICATION from the University of Leeds and was the Yorkshire editor Whatsonstage.com.

Gentlemen Prefer Bows Over Dinner

Gentlemen-Prefer-Bows-Over-Dinner-Stephanie-Berger-and-Carina-Finn1Old-time TV over Reebok, heaven over love.
After two beers their lips part; they get very lucky.
Four Martinis later, you’re homeless in America,
carrying an old-fashioned medical bag around
like your mother’s purse. This emergency is paramount,
tantamount, it is a Matterhorn, it is an emergency,
complete and full of meaning, explicitly significant
as a white flag—
Do you ever go to the Disney castle looking for smoke
stacks, a tea house? You are climbing everything
in the field outside my vision, which is the earth,
which is the target of a disaster. Love letters
over candy. Letters over love. There is no love outside
of the letter. There is a rose outside in the garden,
and I caught a falling leaf for the first time in my life.
I cut two copies of the key to my heart,
hammered light into sound, gunned down
three of my greatest opponents with a single shot.
I predicted this catastrophe, the catacombs
beneath the chapel, keyed the hammer, hammered the leaf
into forty smaller leaves. Even this endless heaven requires
an umbrella. Even this eternity retired
and hired a timekeeper. And we are on our way up
the Cyclone, the hurricane is coming. We are embarking
upon the Titanic on its third voyage across
the bottom of the sea, and we will wake up in different
hospitals, end up living in different palaces, one of us might
even camp outside for the night for the romance. The sun
also rises over ten different cities at once. You are climbing
everything in the field outside my vision
with the luck of a leaf. Stuck in seagrass, we flounder
like in the movies. At the end, after the great
disaster, we still take showers, get clean
and have our coffee, a small loaf of bread, and we eat it
with a fork and knife, gentlemen that we are.

AND SO IT IS BECAUSE OF THE LICHEN

Gathering the facts like so many

bones. They make a good tool

for telling you I am in love. With

the flint, I tear one open, climb in,

and speak: hold me close like a crucifix

above the river. I cannot cross it the way

I would my heart. In certain chambers,

the water pooled and stood. Day by day,

you recount your disillusions. You drink

from one spring & then the next. I have

remarked in women a curious ability

to embroider the facts. To get at the truth

I have been compelled to treat them as

pathological. What are her threats

but testimonies of love? That sincerity

she strewed about her as seed is

strewn and up grew a trampled flower.

Gathering the facts like so many flowers,

I just don’t like the water in the air

anymore. Stay on the ground. Let

your feet touch the bottom of the

spring, gaze longingly. These are

your instructions. It’s all you have

to do. He will love you too. You

will have a home. But I am scared

to descend. What if I hate it there?

So many birds in the air, pictures

in the rocks. It is vertiginous. Why

do they make it here, rather than

there? Because of the lichen, it is

impossible to see the footprints of

a child with the natural eye. His

life can be impenetrable because

of the footprints of his children

beneath the lichen. The sun is out &

water falls upon my head. My heart

takes leaps because of the lichen.
