Tyburnia (James Holcombe, DRO & Lisa Knapp)

Inaugurating the 2017 Tyburnia tour, Rattis Books is pleased to present a live film and soundtrack performance of Tyburnia by James Holcombe, Dead Rat Orchestra and Lisa Knapp.

Shot on 8mm and 16mm film, the work drifts through artefacts associated with the Tyburn; reliquaries housing the remains of

catholic martyrs, body parts preserved by surgeons, the bell that tolled on the eve of executions, and the eventual resting place of the gallows themselves.

For this iteration, James Holcombe will be utilizing multiple film projectors for an expanded cinema performance of the work featuring physical manipulation, optical distortion, and live destruction of film.

Dead Rat Orchestra in collaboration with award winning multi-instrumentalist and singer Lisa Knapp, will perform a live soundtrack featuring songs composed by or for those condemned to 'dance the Tyburn jig', bringing a new understanding to broadside ballads that have become a staple of folk music, but here presented in close association to their original context.
