Get Ready. Surprise Yourself. Power Up!
Power Up! is an energising performance video and soundtrack that moves us all towards increasing connection, getting out and about again, and coming back to the stage.
Deeply immersive and engaging, Power Up! combines bold artistic elements with movement, music and voice to shift the viewer’s energy from isolation and separation towards expansion, fun, and renewed creative connection.
Led by Artistic Director Nilgun Guven with video artist Kate Geck, Power Up! showcases the performances, artworks and voices of Fog Theatre Ensemble that combine the evocative language of the theatre and personal reflections.
Three distinct versions of the work have been produced: a captioned video work, an audio-described video work and an audio-only version. Along with these works, you will also find a transcript of the captioned video version, and transcript of the audio described video version.
