LETITIA PLEIADES / MARIAM REZAEI (DUO)

A new collaboration between two restlessly creative UK-based artists operating on the fringes of dance music and improvisation. Alongside her bass-heavy DJ sets – which have joyously slayed Counterflows dancefloors over the years – Letitia Pleiades’s amorphous artistic practice has embraced dance, herbalism and membership in some of Glasgow’s most “out” groups – Asparagus Piss Raindrop, THOTH and Fem Bitch Nation. Operating out of TOPH in Gateshead, Mariam Rezaei engages with turntables, drum machines and vocals in a manner that recognises their traditional and experimental potential, forming a collaborative, exploratory practice that traverses the space between sweaty, hi-octane clubs, DIY gig spaces and concert halls.
