James Weeks MURAL
On entering MURAL the audience is confronted with a fragmented video wall by Sam Belinfante portraying ideas of boundary, interiority and exteriority, while two separated quartets of singers will perform in parallel, surrounding the audience in sound and image. The music articulates a range of quotations ranging from essays of John Cage and poetry of Fernando Pessoa to critiques of the art of Vermeer.
Limewharf, Vyner Street, London, E2 9DJ – 3pm & 5pm.
Tickets (£15 unreserved) available from the Spitalfields Festival website.
