2018 Centenary Year

Southwark Billboard Commission

On 9 November 2018 Linder will perform a new work to mark the launch of ‘The Bower of Bliss’, an 85 metre photomontage wrapping Southwark station. Comprised of new music, choreography and costumes, eleven performers will create a part sci-fi, part neoclassical visual spectacle deep in the underground. Exploring ancient cultures and their reinterpretation in popular culture, each character depicts nobility and splendour. Culminating in the arrival of the Night Queen borrowed from Mozart’s The Magic Flute, the underground, often a site of oppositional and subterranean cultures, becomes a lunar Bower of Bliss.
