Club Shamoun's most ambitious work yet, HELL, takes creative liberty in their visceral landscape 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, the 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. HELL premiered in NYC in February 2022 and its west coast premiere at Base Experimental Arts + Space in April 2022. Conceived and 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.
Club Shamoun is an interdisciplinary performance art company that works with artists across all mediums, including film, dance, theatre, music, and visual, to create radical thought-provoking works.
Hell contains loud live music, fog, and nudity- this show is not appropriate for children.
