Beating/Breaking Shell

Beating/Breaking Shell opens up new modes of expression through the movement of two bodies and the sound of one violin, attempting to capture a model of the universe in sound and movement and transmit it vicariously into the body of the viewer.

Michael Popper and Nigel Osborne

Taking the late writings of the poet Sergei Esenin as their starting point, Nigel Osborne and Michael Popper collaborate on a new work for choreographed bass voice and cello (performed by Clea Friend and Michael Popper).

Sue Hawksley and Suzanne Parry
