ARKA KINARI: ARTIVISM AT SEA
A World Premiere at CULTVR, Cardiff.
Immersive storytelling performance from two international artists and climate activists, Grey Filastine & Nova Ruth in collaboration with 4Pi Productions.
‘It was our dream to set sail across the world, creating travelling shows without causing pollution’. Filastine & Nova.
In a live immersive documentary performance combining 360º video, music and story, Nova Ruth & Grey Filastine share the voyage of Arka Kinari, a floating cultural platform on a mission to share a message about climate change and the promotion of climate resilience through music and art.
‘Subversive, immersive and partially submerged’, Arka Kinari is a 70-ton sailing ship powered by the sun, equipped with solar panels and a seawater desalination system, and home to a gallery of activists, makers and artists who share a collective message and purpose in sounding the eco alarm for climate change.
For 7 weeks this summer, 2022, Cardiff based arts studio 4Pi Productions joined Filastine and Nova on the ship as it travelled from Bali to Jakarta to document the journey and capture immersive content for this performance and make a 360º documentary film.
This project has been supported by the British Council’s International Collaboration Grants.
