As the darkness of winter approaches, she invites you into her strange and surreal universe. Not only will you encounter a devastatingly beautiful explosion of sound you will be able to feast your eyes on the work of artists Bluebeany & GrimVisions, who will be bringing The Dyr Sister’s modern day fairy tales to life using set design & digital projection mapping. A performance blending elements of music, art & theatre will mean that this immersive experience promises to be unmissable!

The Dyr Sister [https://www.thedyrsister.com] is headed up by Sally Currie, a multi-instrumentalist who was born partially deaf.
She has been performing as The Dyr Sister solo since 2013, incanting her dark modern-day fairy tales under the banner ‘fairy tales for the modern gentleman’. She formed a band in late 2019 & was also awarded an emergent commission with Drake Music. She collaborated with Bluebeany to write a song & set it to moving image. In 2021 Sally was successfully accepted onto Sound and Music’s Composer Curator programme.
Bluebeany [https://www.bluebeany.com/about] (Anna Bean) is a visual artist working across many disciplines. She creates artwork imagining surreal worlds filled with curious anthropomorphic characters. She also collaborates with performers to transform these 2D created worlds into 3D immersive theatrical experiences allowing the audience to walk in & become part of these imaginary spaces.
She is inspired & influenced by cinema, theatre, television programmes & old masters. She will be collaborating with GrimVisions [https://www.grimvisions.net/about] (Ed Grimoldby) who is an award-winning artist specialising in digital theatre creating work in England & internationally. His work explores movement & digital technology.
Monday afternoon performances will be relaxed & we will have a friendly attitude to noise & movement in the auditorium. Seating is unallocated but we can provide an accessible seated viewing location on request. The space is wheelchair accessible & has a disabled toilet. PA tickets are available, just get in touch if you require one. If you have any questions or requests about access please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
