This is not a concert, this is a happening.
Extraordinary Bodies collaborates with the British Paraorchestra and Friends on a unique one-off performance of Terry Riley’s ‘In C’ at Birmingham Town Hall and Symphony Hall on Wednesday 27 February.
With semi-improvised movement, aerial flying and physical theatre, Terry Riley’s minimalist masterpiece In C is reimagined as the unique union of two very different disciplines. Extraordinary Bodies take cues from Riley’s impulsive and slow-morphing cornerstone minimalist composition, resulting in a hypnotic showcase of physical and mental dexterity. The combined effect will be cathartic, uplifting and engulfing – the aural equivalent to climbing inside a giant lava lamp.
‘In C’ will be performed in the round; coupled with the semi-improvised nature of the piece, and the evolutionary performance of Riley’s score, no two audiences’ experiences are ever the same.
The ‘stage’ will be in the centre of the Town Hall with the audience standing around this ‘stage’.
