Tamarin Norwood

Musica Practica

11.03.2012 at 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Modern Art Oxford

Performance Location: Oxford City Centre, outside Sheldonian Theatre, off Broad Street

A lone orchestra conductor performs in public, translating the sounds and everyday movements surrounding him into real-time orchestral choreography. Conflating instruction and response, conductor and audience simultaneously direct one another’s actions. Artist and writer Tamarin Norwood identifies a single thread of enquiry running through John Gerrard’s Legacy Fellowship commission and its associated programme: the translation of physical movements into choreographed instructions. Performed by Anthony Weeden.
