The Secret Elevator

The Secret Elevator is a new digital project from Ulita, blending poetry, music and visuals to tell the episodic adventures of a rogue elevator, who kidnaps its unwitting occupants, and takes them on unwanted adventures. Episode 1 was commissioned by Lancaster Jazz Festival, and will premiere in February 2021. It follows Nathan and Kate as their afternoon in a ‘very tall building full of important people’ is interrupted by an impromptu journey deep underground, to meet subterraneous crustaceans, and encounter the mythical river Lethe.

Made by Ulita - Poem and songs by Nishla Smith, visuals by Luca Shaw, music by Tom Harris.
