LOWSALT NEWS 2009:


The ‘ORZEL’ film performance
November 5th, 6th and 7th
(2 Shows per Night: 7-8pm and 9-10pm)
Across from STEREO Bar ///// 20-28 Renfield Lane, Glasgow, G2 6PH



Created by the 85A Collective
Produced in association with Lowsalt Gallery

The extremely rare Polish film 'Orzel' (1958) dramatically tells the true story of 'the Eagle', a Polish submarine that escaped internment in Estonia during the outbreak of WWII at the ever-growing hands of the Nazis and miraculously escaped, without the aid of maps and next to little fuel, to the far off shore of Rosyth, Scotland.

Taking their lead from the industrial naval might of the Orzel, the pounding barrage of depth charges, and the eerie presence of sonar, 85A have created The ORZEL film performance: an expanded cinema experience involving the screening of a remixed version of the original film and a musical sound-scape performed live, all within the confines and claustrophobic context of a submarine set-piece.

85A’s new venture is a collaborative synthesis of 13 Glasgow based artists and musicians which grew out of the highly received: 'The Student of Prague' performance [The Now Museum, Nov. 2008] - the aggregation of an old, silent German horror film and a newly composed score performed live over two respective nights, produced by The Now Museum in association with Lowsalt Gallery and Pointless AV.
