UnknownGillian Keith reprises her spell-binding performance of Kurtág’s ‘Scenes From A Novel’ directed by Elaine Tyler-Hall with the Psappha Ensemble at The Stoller Hall in Manchester. Voice, film and dance combine in this atmospheric production, which explores the contradictions between fleeting experience and the persistence of memory.

Also on the programme is Ligeti’s astonishing Aventures & Nouvelles Aventures, both touching and comic. Three singers – alone in their little universe – tell each other stories, exchange confidences and play games through an invented language of the emotions. Meanwhile, the instrumentalists punctuate the drama with some extreme musical interjections involving a giant hammer, a tray of crockery, and a large rug!
