During the Olympics London 2012 Lyrix Organix was commissioned to produce ‘Relay’.
A 360 degree immersive live music, spoken word and visual art outdoor production, Relay performed 23 shows in 11 London boroughs – including International Youth Arts Festival (Kingston), Victoria Park (Hackney), White Cross Street Festival (Islington), Yard Theatre (Hackney Wick), Westfield Shopping Centre and Thames Festival – as part of Mayor of London’s Showtime Festival.
Relay placed 4 stages around the audience with a 360 degree sound design. Every show was unique with improvised elements that tapped into the local community. It featured Dean Atta (poet), Natty Speaks (freestyle hip hop), Zee Gachette (blues) and Grace Savage (UK Female Beatbox Champion). Each performance was accompanied by live art by illustrator Joanna Layla alongside special guest artists.
