Events

OPPOSITES REACT has been running since 2012 taking events to locations around the U.K. 2015 brings an exciting new event series with a lineup of events and music, the majority of which is yet to be written. The audience and composers will collaborate to produce a new musical reaction for Opposites React 2015.


10 July 2015 – NIGHT AND DAY Zigfrid Von Underbelly @ 7:30pm

The first event of this series will explore an opposite that we experience every day – that between day and night itself. Day and night leads to so many conflicts within itself including light and dark, hot and cold, security and risk. With a lineup of vocalists, clarinet/EWI, flute, guitar, bass guitar, cello and marimba all alongside a backdrop of electronic production this will be a night of conflict and harmony that can only be experienced together at the venue.

Venue: Zigfrid Von Underbelly, 11 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NU

Time: 7:30pm until late

 


Mini-Series – THE GATE Zigfrid Von Underbelly

Gate ImageWalking in circles around a Budhist Retreat in Northern Thailand with no words, little food and nothing but time. A stark contrast to the town less than an hour’s drive away. The choice that we each have every day of our lives to stay inside or to step outside. London, New York, Barcelona. Every city has its opposing country side and that is what makes us the countries that we are. This concept of a constant imbalance that we aim to bring to centre will be explored over the next three events of this series crossing musical barriers, poetry and imagery.
