Séance

A moving musical performance, transforming The Deaf Institute Venue into a space for connection. Submissions from audiences are central to this project. Please read on to learn more. 

Built around voicemail messages from lost loved ones, artists’ Verity Watts and Rosie Parsons, will invite audiences to come together over shared experiences of loss and grief.

Many of us keep everyday messages or voicemails from loved ones after they have passed, and this piece seeks to create a space where they can be heard and responded to through music and sound, to honour the significance of these messages, and place them in a new and uplifting context.

Using the idea of a séance, the performance draws on the different ways we maintain a connection with those who are no longer with us. Using turntables, electronics and newly commissioned choral motifs, artists Verity Watts and Rosie Parsons will work together with improvising performers Lara Jones (saxophone) and Lucy Nolan (harp), to create a supportive, shared space through sound and music.
