Stuart Brown MNDMTH
Liz Johnson Scintilla (work-in-progress)

Followed by an open discussion between artists and audience introduced by Richard Whitelaw.

This event provides a unique insight into two new works-in-progress: Scintilla creates a rich tapestry of dance, live poetry and music, weaving through layers of live electronics that transform and shape-shift, exploring wild exterior landscapes and the interior landscape of the mind with award-winning choreographer/dancer Dane Hurst. MNDMTH is a new solo project exploring the use of drums to trigger and manipulate live audio-visual elements, creating an immersive, multimedia performance which challenges the traditional role of the drummer.

Liz Johnson and Stuart Brown are among Sound and Music’s current ‘New Voices’ artists and there will be a chance to discover the rich and varied work of the full New Voices cohort through a listening station at the event. Have your say over a free drink in a post-performance conversation with choreographer Dane Hurst and composer, Liz Johnson.
