A twelve day prelude moving across the city; a twelve-hour sound art opera of betrayal and rebellion culminating in a spectacular series of disturbing performances in Chelsea College of Art Parade Ground; a one-day coda of debate.

Moving Forest expands the last 12 minute of Kurosawa’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, ‘Throne of Blood’ (1957), into a sonic performance saga with a prelude of 12 days, a durational performance of 6 acts in 12 hours and a closing Coda for the sake of argument.
