Voyage of The Relic Traveller

Audio-Visual performance, 2017

Voyage of The Relic Traveller forms part of Larry Achiampong's 'Relic Traveller: Phase 1', a multi-disciplinary project manifesting in performance, audio, moving image and prose.

Taking place across various landscapes and locations, the project builds upon a postcolonial perspective informed by technology, agency and the body, and narratives of migration.

Voyage of the Relic Traveller is a performance by Larry Achiampong with Shiraz Bayjoo, the work simultaneously combines multi-channel visuals depicting historical, present and future colonial narratives accompanied by an intense, beat-driven live soundtrack of remixed audio and spoken word.

Voyage of The Relic Traveller is an artwork made possible with funding from Somerset House & Arts Council England.
