The festival opens with a launch night of sounds, sights and¬†surprises at St Mary in the Castle to challenge your perceptions¬†of this familiar and well-loved local space. Curated by visual arts¬†specialists ZEROH, the evening will hail the opening of the festival in¬†a unique and spectacular way.
The theme of the evening, The Dawn Chorus, is inspired in part by¬†the unveiling of Kate MccGwire‚Äôs commissioned sculpture and will¬†herald the start of this year‚Äôs festival. The multi-layered ceremony¬†will be a visual and audio representation of the journey from night to¬†day utilising the unique environment at St Mary‚Äôs.
Evolving over the course of the evening, this one-off special¬†event includes singers, multi-instrumentalists and sound artists,¬†culminating in an incredible performance that you won‚Äôt want to¬†miss.
Over the coming weeks more clues about the ceremony will be¬†revealed here and at¬†www.zeroh.net
We hope you‚Äôll join us,
