Say, is there beauty yet to find? And certainty? And quiet kind?”

Interlude is a unique solo encounter where an audience member is given the opportunity to arrange a piece of 12 part vocal music with their movement through circles of light.  As they travel around the space audiences will trigger voices, sung by some of the UK’s most innovative singers, filling the space with music, layering harmonies and creating an intricate vocal composition. Interlude offers audiences their own moment to recapture control of their environment; release extraordinary vocal sounds with their own physical movements while empowering them to be part of the composition.

The installation will first be shown at Battersea Arts Centre as part of ‘Cook-Up’ on the 21st and 22nd November 2014, before the official première at Toynbee Studios on the 2nd and 3rd December 2014.

Featuring the voices of Jeremy Birchall, Helen Chadwick, Daniel Cunningham, Eugenia Georgieva, Hannah Howrie, Jonathan Peter Kenny, Sam Lee, Jenny Minton, Phil Minton, Melanie Pappenheim, Ellie Showering and Rebecca Thorn.

Jenny Minton gratefully acknowledges financial support from Arts Council England and PRS for Music Foundation’s Women Make Music programme.
