Poetry, Minimalism & Music

Date: 23rd March 2015, 19:00
Venue: Kings Place

Poet in the City, in collaboration with Aurora Orchestra, presents an event exploring the poetry and music of Minimalism.

Emerging from Modernism’s ground breaking energy in the early 20th century, poets including Ezra Pound and William Carlos Williams inspired a new minimalist movement, which sought to reshape and distil the human experience. We take a look at the fascinating journey from these early origins to the compression effects of short form poetry and interpretations in contemporary music.

Presenting poetry and live music in a unique conversation, this special event will explore the way art absorbed and interpreted this striking form. Featuring performances from Aurora’s principle cellist Oliver Coates.

Cost: £9.50
