Sunday 22 August 2021, 7.30pm
An evening of performance and artistic exploration, investigating the definitions, boundaries and interrelationship between music, audience and performance aids, such as scores, surrounding objects and physical space. What are their respective roles and can we re-evaluate our pre-conceptions and expectations about them?
The evening could facilitate a moment of deep listening and private reflection. A moment to simply ‘be’ in a communion with others. An evening of creative exploration and examination. Or perhaps an evening to have a couple of pints and listen to some cool people. Together we will experience this retreat hearing works performed by ensembles, soloists as well as yourselves.
Come ready to participate!
