In this special solo show at PremArts, Dafne Della Dafne presents a collection of her latest song compositions and sound works, with accompanying video material, tracking her artistic interpretation of socio-economic and cultural conditions. In a landscape inhabited by changed climates, precarious living and gentrification, late capitalism’s gloom and doom is analysed in Dafne Della Dafne’s creative lab, Salon Daflon, and transformed into contemplative ruminations on how to survive and thrive in modern times.

There will be a live half-hour performance by the artist every evening.

Free entry, donations welcome.
