Description

///PLEASE NOTE THERE HAS BEEN A DATE CHANGE FROM APRIL 2ND TO MAY 27TH, DUE TO COVID CAUSING SOME DISRUBTION/// we hope this wont cause any inconvenience. 

' Cellist Maja Bugge and 'Inside out' pianist Sarah Nicolls issue a digital yet immersive wake-up call on the urgency of the climate crisis in this 55 minute film made during lockdown.

The film 'Ballad of a changing world' combines emotionally-charged music with learning about kittiwakes – birds which are on the move due to climate change. Conversations with scientists in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK and Tromso, Norway are interrupted by the sometimes hilarious attempts to make a music show in lockdown. It was commissioned by Cheltenham Music Festival and Arctic Arts in 2021.

The screening will be followed by a Q and A with the artist and Dr Helen Wilson from Durham university.

Praises on the work:

“This is a fantastic project and a new and innovative way of presenting art and science.”

Dr Catherine Henaug, Director Norwegian institute of Nature Research

“Maja and Sarah’s performance, was a highlight of our Festival. The audience were completely engaged from the start. Maja’s cello and Sarah’s extraordinary “inside out” piano responded to each other and created an emotional soundscape for the themes evoked in their words.” Clementine Lovell, producers residencies at Snape Maltings

“By making us realise the constraint of the situation you were in during lockdown, whilst making the show, you created a deeply poetic parallel with the birds.”

“This was a project where science and art really came together: knowledge and emotions merging in a unusual and extraordinary way...”
