We are very excited to confirm Thomas John Bacon's first date for England in 2015, as he returns just over a year on to PASSION/Flower once more, in collaboration with the wonderful Ernst Fischer.  

Inspired by a ritual known as Matam, which takes place in the Shiite ceremony of Ashura, PASSION/Flower transcends its origins, becoming an action that opens the body to a trance state of rhythm & ritual practice.  

Last shown in 2014 at MPA Berlin, the pair reunite in the Live Art House at Latitude 2015, under the new context of Tempting Failure's SILENT NOISE DIVE.  Here audiences can switch between two live orchestrations of either harsh or ambient soundscapes that will be scored by the amazing temp0rary in response to their performance art provocation. However only the audience and the sound artists can hear the audio, as Fischer & Bacon tempt failure anew by presenting this established work in a new unique context
