MSL will co-produce a new work, Divertimento for Rope & Strings, with Whirligig Arts Management featuring prize-winning aerialist, Gisele Edwards. 

Divertimento for Rope & Strings is a playful, unexpected collaboration between the artist, Gisele Edwards, and two eminent classical musicians, violinist, Ken Aiso, and cellist, Ingrid Schoenlaub. Crossing boundaries of circus, music, physical theatre and visual arts it looks at how we experience music three dimensionally – viscerally, physically, spatially. Playing with themes of body, movement and space, it considers how simple bodies can, through movement, give rise to something as ethereal as music. An abridged showcase of the work, in partnership with Riotous Company as part of Tête à Tête Opera’s Cubitt Sessions in August 2016, received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the audience.

Divertimento for Rope & Strings will be workshopped at Fairlight Hall, Hastings, in January and February, 2018, and will premiere at St Mary in the Castle, Hastings, from 13th to 15th February, 2018. Thereafter the show will be touring – dates and venues to be confirmed.
