La Prima Donna

La Prima Donna

Latitude Festival, Henham Park,
Suffolk, UK
18 July 2009

Performed live in Pandora’s Playground at the Latitude Festival, this unique collaboration between La Prima Donna and Illustrious Company saw a new live performance of dance and 3D Sound.

‘La Prima Donna’ was an audio-visual performance installation by Hellcat Productions, which utilised characters from Caryl Churchill’s 1982 play ‘Top Girls’. Combining choreographed dance, performative gender and period-shifting costume the performance explored contorted ideals of feminine beauty.

Featuring live DJing, the sound was provided by Illustrious using 3D surround sound technology.
