KOYAANISQATSI (1982), WITH A NEW SCORE PERFORMED BY WE STOOD LIKE KINGS

Sat 14 September @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- £12

Neoclassical post-rockers WE STOOD LIKE KINGS perform a new score for the film Koyaanisqatsi (1982), directed by Godfrey Reggio, who said of his film: “Koyaanisqatsi attempts to reveal the beauty of the beast! We usually perceive our world, our way of living, as beautiful because there is nothing else to perceive. If one lives in this world, the globalized world of high technology, all one can see is one layer of commodity piled upon another. In our world the ‘original’ is the proliferation of the standardized. Copies are copies of copies. There seems to be no ability to see beyond, to see that we have encased ourselves in an artificial environment that has remarkably replaced the original, nature itself. Art is free. It stimulates the viewer to insert their own meaning. So in the sense of art, the meaning of Koyaanisqatsi is whatever you wish to make of it. This is its power.”
