The Deadhouse
Enter via New Wing

Due to popular demand of the now sold out RAGE series, ASSEMBLY presents an additional performance of The Cage. Please note this is a NAKED only performance.

Utilising the architecture of the Deadhouse, an underground tunnel beneath the Somerset House courtyard housing the remnants of a former chapel, The Cage is an intense and visceral experience, aiming to create an unflinching statement of self-empowerment. In The Cage everyone becomes both hostage and accomplice of the ‘system’ - the global situation, as a result of the political instability, economic uncertainty and social anxiety. The Cage questions and explores freedom, control, abolishment of hierarchies and refusal to dominate and be dominated.

NAKED are Agnes Gryczkowska and Alexander Johnston, a duo engaging with noise, industrial and extreme forms of electronic music. In 2017, they released an alternative national anthem for DAZED which followed the release of their debut album Zone and a collaboration with Mykki Blanco. NAKED have performed at Unsound Festival, CTM Festival, Serpentine Galleries, SXSW, RBMA and Cafe OTO and recently completed their first Asia tour. Their most recent EP ‘Total Power Exchange’ was released on Halcyon Veil.
