The Spirit in the Dust

#FindYour Weird, Story, Groove, Thrill

YUMINO SEKI (dance/performance)
MARK FRENCH (interactive projections and staging)

Following performances in St Leonards on Sea in 2023-24, THE SPIRIT IN THE DUST comes to Brighton for the first time.

Japanese Butoh-influenced dancer Yumino Seki performs with original music played live by Afrit Nebula (Elaine Edwards, Ken Edwards, Yair Katz).

"Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper." – Albert Einstein

Based on an original concept and musical composition by Elaine Edwards with text by Ken Edwards, the piece imagines a world spirit conjured from darkness into an exploding theatre of light. Moving images (by Mark French) are projected onto a translucent kinetic screen which provide a multi-dimensional setting for the dance. The whole performance builds to a mesmerising climax before resolving itself into the musical and visual ether.

THE SPIRIT IN THE DUST lasts approximately 50 minutes, and is prefaced with a 30-minute overture performance by Afrit Nebula.


An awe inspiring hypnotic moving sculpture in light and diaphonous material.... A wild, experimental and exciting event!

The dance, the music and the concept were totally breathtaking. The performance as a whole was passionate, profound and stunningly beautiful.
