HYG Nights is back for the third time! An evening of performance art around the concept of “personas”.
The night will feature performances from
”Uran Apak is a singer and multimedia artist, devising ritual performances based on structured improvisations.
He holds an MA in Sonic Arts from Goldsmiths University and previously studied Comparative Literature in Istanbul. He has performed at The Roundhouse, The Southbank Centre and toured the UK and abroad with his music projects and released four albums.
On the night Uran will be performing: Persona Waves, an improvised performance using loop station and voice. The performance consists of five short parts that are built around vocal expressions ranging from meditative to chaotic. Each part brings forth a different voice / persona with his/her own way of singing and relating to the audience.
Tânia Miranda de Carvalho:

She is currently studying Theatre Arts at Middlesex University, where her past productions include ‘Ubu Roi’ by Alfred Jarry, ‘Global Warming and How We (Don’t) Respond To It’ in collaboration with Instant Mix Theatre Lab and ‘Attempts on Her Life’ by Martin Crimp.”
”Atlas is a performance artist and cabaret director based in London. Their current practise is exploring the intersection between ritual & queer identity. The untitled piece on show at the Hundred Years Gallery is a work-in-progress furthering this investigation.
How is the performance of a ritual intrinsic in the formation of and identity?
By performing an unfamiliar ritual, do you assume the associated identity?
Does a witch buy her salt from ASDA?”
Hissie Phit (Emily Howarth):
”Guess who’s back?”
