Instant Places



Laura Kavanaugh and Ian Birse create generative performances and installations using handmade hardware/software systems. As Instant Places, the pair have nearly two decades of experience presenting their unique, intensive projects at some of the most exciting venues and festivals around the world. Combining colourful visual abstracts and fidgeting, organic soundscapes, Instant Places fold the audience into a deeper understanding of sound and space. As their moniker suggests, Birse and Kavanaugh use their tech savvy and sharpened performative instincts to map out what feels like new and sudden phenomenological spaces. By recombining and responding to pre-existing forces, Instant Places perform the inside-outing of reality.
