Festival Review: Inter:mission

November 21, 2016 - by Mike Pony

Bristol University student magazine Inter:mission strives to unearth the best of Bristol’s culture and bring it together with the wealth of student talent. Elena Angelides and Funmibi Ogunlesi came along to Submerge Festival to review events Dive, Into The Deep and The Ascent

The Ascent

“It was hard not to submit to the chills when realizing this whole event may not have been legitimized in other public spaces. Submerge Festival, Horseplay and Old Coroners Court allowed a space for the LGBT community to express themselves freely, explicitly, and without prejudice.”

Into The Deep

“Disturbing to say the last, but clearly the intention. To me, the piece suggested that phallocentric society ultimately determines what women can and can’t wear.”

“Following our Interview with Mike, who told us ‘the Festival creates experiences which can be beautiful and overwhelming’ – the criteria was certainly met. ‘The Well’ combined music, lasers, smoke to do just that.”

“The light drummed against his brain, bathing the submerged levels below his consciousness, carrying him downwards into warm pellucid depths, where the nominal realities of time and space ceased to exist.” - J.G. Ballard, The Drowned World
