ANERHLOD - LEIBNIZ - Transfusion: A Collective Act of Remembrance

  • The Spread Eagle theatre 39-41 Katharine Street Croydon, England, CR0 1NX United Kingdom (map)

ANERHLOD’s Blood (2017; based on the tripartite physiology of blood and the recursive nature of the circulatory system) with a pre-written but unrehearsed performance score (to be composed and facilitated by Fischer and Spackman; based on re-membered fragments - actions, images, objects &/or words - drawn primarily from The Book of Blood : Human (w)Rites, an ongoing, participatory arts project conceived by Fischer and initiated by LEIBNIZ in 2005 that explores issue of human rights in collaboration with host venues and their local communities. 


ANERHLOD (Alessandro Aloisi) is a classically-trained turned ‘dark-ambient’ composer- musician. Inspired by the creative processes of the universe, ANERHLOD’s intuitively-led, oneiric-sidereal soundscapes cross-over acoustic and electronic, transcribed and improvised music, inviting the listener to explore and experience new, continuously mutating worlds.

This ‘deterritorializing’ quest is shared by LEIBNIZ, a fluid Live Art collective co-founded by Ernst Fischer and Helen Spackman in 2005. Extending their long-standing investment in queering ‘domesticity’, their work as LEIBNIZ addresses issues of displacement and migration, social control and exclusion. The over-arching objective is the ongoing development of collaborative activities from which refreshed concepts and practices of ‘home’ and ‘belonging’ and new, politicised inter-corporealities may continue to emerge.
