In this moment we have been working with commissioned artists to rethink and reimagine how their contribution to the Lincoln Live Season can be revised and reimagined; how new work can be shared and enjoyed together with audiences in a safe, virtual, domestic and necessarily personal environment.
This event will take place live using Zoom, a free online video chat service. For security reasons, booking via Eventbrite is essential and a hyperlink that will take you to the event will be shared with attendees via Eventbrite email 1hr before the event start time. Children Welcome.

Eritrean- born artist Lula Mebrahtu is amongst a handful of musicians leading the way for the evolution of music using an interactive midi controller, MiMu gloves, which translate simple hand movements into complex musical compositions. Co-pilot of the sonic voyage is Linda Rocco.
lula.xyz (birth name Lula Mebrahtu) is amidst a handful of musicians leading the way for the evolution of music using an interactive midi controller, MiMu gloves, which translate simple movements into complex musical compositions. Lula brings together art, science, education and music for the purpose of storytelling – with a deep understanding of social issues pertaining to migration, her evocative work is a visceral experience that defies traditional conventions.
This event is delivered by independent curator and researcher Linda Rocco as part of a wider programme marking 200 years since Antarctica was first sighted. Celsius forms part of Mansions of the Future’s Lincoln Live season and Antarctica In Sight – a UK wide cultural programme of activity supported by the UK Antarctica Heritage Trust. This series of talks, workshops and performance will explore the groundbreaking intersections of arts and STEM subjects with a focus on climate change and the uniquely precarious position of Antarctica in today’s sociopolitical climate. The week long programme will feature contributions from artists Rhine Bernadino, Lula Mebrahtu, Aidan Moesby and Josefina Nelimarkka.
This project is part of Mansions of the Future’s Lincoln Live programme March – November 2020 (Season extended in response to COVID-19). Departing from Lincoln’s rich entertainment and theatre history, Lincoln Live features new commissions which exist at the intersections of disciplinary boundaries. The season is a celebration of performative ventures that stand resolutely marginal to both the history of English theatre and the often exclusive, disciplinary rhetoric of contemporary performance art.
