Pioneers is an audio play developed by Alyona Larionova which tells the story of two teenage sisters who find shelter in a small room from the dangers looming outside. In facing their fear, the sisters discover that the only route to safety is to remember a story that predates language.
It's currently installed at Turf Projects, London as a part of ALPHABET, an exhibition by Alyona Larionova
'Conceived as a response to the global pandemic and systemic injustices it has brought to light, the exhibition ‘Pandemic Alphabet’ is a collaborative project between the artist and Croydon’s youth collective, Art Press. The project investigates the impact of social isolation on young people and provides them with a platform to weave their own stories into global narratives of climate change, the pandemic among others.'
