Let’s Eat Grandma‘s score of Tai Shani‘s Turner Prize-nominated work, Semiramis, is available digitally today via Transgressive. The three tracks were originally composed by the British duo, comprising Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, to accompany theSemiramis performance pieces at Glasgow International. Semiramis is the culmination of Shani’s ongoing project, Dark Continent, and is an experimental adaptation of a 15th century feminist text, Christine de Pizan’s The Book of the City of Ladies. Shani uses theatrical installations, performances and films to create her own allegorical city of women populated by fantastical characters, transporting the viewer to another time and place. The performances will be restaged within the installation this autumn at Turner Contemporary in Margate as part of the Turner Prize exhibition. You can read more information on Tai Shani’s Turner Prize-shortlisted project via The Tate website here.
