Tapestries is a choreographed sensorial concert that is set to enhance an ingenious reworking of Janacek’s String Quartet No.1 by composer Fred Thomas and poet Kayo Chingonyi. As one of 30 guests, you will be paired individually with a dancer who will blindfold you and lead you through a concert for the senses, feeding you gourmet tastes by chef Adam Thomason, surrounding you in bespoke scents created by Sarah McCartney and enveloping you in intense movement & touch based choreography by BitterSuite. The score interweaves Janacek’s full work together with original choral spoken poetry and phrases taken from Janacek’s inspiration: The Kreutzer Sonata.

Performed live by Phaedra Ensemble.
