Award-winning international artists Me and The Machine were commissioned to work with local artists and communities to create original interactive dance and performance events inspired by Lincolnshire Libraries’ Creepy House Summer Reading Challenge. This partnership project has delivered a programme of activities that explore the creative uses of immersive film and dance.
Following an intensive week of roadshow activities across five Lincolnshire libraries, local artists and participants have delivered performances and activities inspired by the theme and the artists’ use of technology alongside film and performance to present an alternative world view. With storytelling, arts and crafts sessions, dance performances and digitally enhanced reality experiences with Me and The Machine the Roadshow events had something for everyone. The artists also presented their widely acclaimed previous work When We Meet Again, using video goggles and 3D sound that transports audiences into a new reality.
The media team at Lincoln University have created a fantastic short documentary film that follows the five day House of Mystery Roadshow across Lincolnshire Libraries, including Skegness, Grantham, Gainsborough, Lincoln Central and Spalding.
The House of Mystery Roadshow is a partnership project between Lincolnshire Libraries, the University of Lincoln, Dance4 and Frequency Festival. Produced by Dance4 with funding from Arts Council England and Lincolnshire County Council.
