Club Shamoun's most ambitious work, HELL, takes creative liberty in its original depiction of this torturous neverland. Throughout time, humans have been motivated by fear of eternal suffering and damnation through many iterations of this neverending prison. Throughout these depictions, movement has been at the forefront of these images within movies, texts, and paintings. We see convulsing bodies, contorted spines, necks moving in rapture's delight, and ritualistic ceremony represented by swaying bodies. The body represents the devil's playground, and movement is his game.
Directed by C-LS founder Lydia Shamoun, HELL features original live music by Ruby Dunphy and Luke Clohisy, technical direction by Kate O'Day, and film by Sierra Hendrix. Hell is performed by collaborators Drew Lewis, Sierra Hendrix, Madison Wada, and Allison Burke.
C-LS has been in the creative process of their latest evening-length experimental performance for over a year. Club Shamoun is an interdisciplinary performance art company that works with artists across all mediums, including film, dance, theatre, music, and visual, to create innovatively thought-provoking works.
