"Make no small plans here" - the favourite saying of America's most extraordinary TV evangelist, Oral Roberts. Driven, charismatic and, at times, tormented.

'Evangelist' engages creatively with Roberts' extraordinary life story, taking the form of an immersive nine room audio-visual installation which features ten original songs written by cellist Lins Wilson and vocalist Jon Foulger.

'Evangelist' was first presented at the internationally renowned Sensoria Festival, Sheffield, in September 2013. The piece explores the charisma, drive, relationships, successes, failures and tragedies of an engrossing character, the relationship between religion and wealth, and the line between faith and fundamentalism.

Buffalo describe their work as "illuminated biographies; stories on the walls and in the spaces".

Supported by: Leeds Inspired, East Street Arts and Live Art Bistro
