Mapped Productions presents
For Wandsworth Arts Fringe Festival
From 10th to 14th May 2017
Nova Insula is a site-responsive cinematic deconstruction of Shakespeare’s The Tempest that invites the viewer to an intimate journey through the basements of Putney Library by interweaving performance, new media and interactive installation.
Using video projections, sensory spaces and live-media interactions, Nova Insula gives a modern twist to Shakespeare’s most famous play by using new media technologies to shed a new light on The Tempest own storyline, themes and characters. Scenes and visual sequences are interlocked into each other, giving the audience the chance to explore the play through a variety of angles that offer new perspectives on the centuries-old Shakespearean classic.
Set in the maze-like underground passages and unseen spaces of the basement of Putney Library, Nova Insula juxtaposes the confined environment of the Library with a transporting and imaginative narrative that the audience is free to explore by walking through the installation and the play unfolds before them.
Part of Wandsworth Council’s arts and culture programme, Wandsworth Arts Fringe brings together over 140 creative companies in an array of nooks and crannies throughout the borough- some indoor, some outdoor, and some truly unexpected. The festival is emphatically inclusive and welcomes participation from artists across all art forms- including performances, exhibitions, comedy, theatre, music, dance and everything in between.
Nova Insula has been created with the generous support of the Enable Wandsworth Arts Team, Putney Public Library and Hackney City Farm.
