Martha Fiennes’ Nativity comes to St Martin-in-the-Fields

News St Martin – Talking Points

Monday 17 December 2012

A still of Mary, Jesus and the shepherds from Martha Fiennes' 'Nativity'

St Martin-in-the-Fields are proud to present Martha Fiennes’ SLOimage ‘Nativity’, this coming Sunday 23 December 2012 from 8.00pm – 10.oopm.

Martha Fiennes’ pioneering contemplative moving-image artwork uses ground-breaking technology and actors to create a unique filmic tableau of 13 characters including Mary and infant Jesus, Angels and Wise Men.

In this contemporary crib scene we experience mesmeric imagery which unfolds, changes and breathes in constant and slow movement.

Here we are drawn to experience the story of Christmas in a new and richly contemplative vein.

A Nativity that is randomly and endlessly unfolding; timeless and always becoming.

A wonderful way to enter into the silence, wonder and the expectation of the nativity.

Free and no tickets required.
