Project Earth: Liverpool! The Cut-Out Opera by Love Ssega

17:00 – 00:00

Join friends Karl, Malik and André as their Project Earth world is transported to Liverpool and brought to life from a 2D comic into a 3D Cut-out Opera. Voiced and Directed by Love Ssega, with new music exclusively written for Liverpool LightNight and featuring original artwork by Andrew Kiwanuka.

Commissioned by METAL in association with LightNight

Musician, songwriter and curator Love Ssega presents an escapist family adventure where viewers are transported into a parallel version of Liverpool City region based on Andrew Kiwanuka’s Project Earth comic, which Love Ssega recently commissioned as part of his Season For Change Airs of the South Circular project. New music has been specially written and composed by Love Ssega to accompany this 3D Cut-out Opera, where the 2D characters and friends from Project Earth find themselves filmed and brought to life in 3D.

As a founder member and original songwriter of Clean Bandit, expect hooks to sing along to as well as a mix of synths and baselines associated with Love Ssega’s more experimental solo productions. Touching upon the themes of climate education, justice and air pollution affecting school-age children, Love Ssega brings stories he noticed growing up in South East London by the South Circular to the Liverpool City Region adapted especially for LightNight, as an act of creative solidarity.

Following the event, viewers will be able to download Love Ssega’s music and backgrounds to create their own ‘Cut-Out Opera’ at home with family or friends.
