The Inception of post lockdown

Inception – Byron Theatre’s first post-lockdown live event

Cancelled twice owing to the local lockdown, Three Lords’ Inception and AV show is Byron Theatre’s first event after reopening.

The Three Lords, Hano Kotevski and Thomas Zachary are collaborating with visionary projection artist, Arianna Bosi, of Dashboard Animals will bring the Nolan/DiCaprio classic to Byron next week.

The AV show is a personal passion project in honour of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi thriller adventure, which will pay homage to beautiful landscapes and architectural shapes and designs. These will be manipulated away from the projection screen – Arianna will again weave the audience in and around the space of the Byron Theatre, while Thomas’ live performance of his original soundscape will guide the audience through an acoustic dream-like state, as well as tipping his musical ‘hat’ to the film’s score composer, Hans Zimmer.

Hano says Three Lords’ aim is to continue to keep live events innovative and accessible to patrons and local artists, while mindfully respecting the continuing nagging reminder that COVID is so present in our lives right now. ‘We are so grateful and fortunate to have the support of Byron Theatre, which has managed to keep its doors open, its patrons and dedicated staff safe, consistently and vigilantly maintaining its COVID Safe status.’

Don’t miss Inception + A/V show on Saturday 25 September at 7.30pm at the Byron Theatre. For tickets go to: byrontheatre.com.
