Divertimento for Rope and Strings

Divertimento

A concert unravels, we step inside the music. Divertimento for Rope & Strings is a playful, unexpected collaboration between the artist, Gisele Edwards, and two eminent classical musicians. Crossing boundaries of circus, music, physical theatre and visual arts it looks at how we experience music three dimensionally – viscerally, physically, spatially. Dominika Hicks writes.

Playing with themes of body, movement and space, Divertimento for Rope and Strings considers how simple bodies can, through movement, give rise to something as ethereal as music.

“Amazing, I’ve never seen anything like this before.”

“It was fresh, irreverent, surprising and very funny. I really enjoyed it.”

“I thought it was fascinating. I found the fiddle and cello playing absolutely astonishing. And Gisele, she’s phenomenal, she gets stronger and stronger, it’s just extraordinary to watch the shapes that she creates and the incredible control she manages.”

“It was sort of like a modern representation of opera. It was really cool that they matched story with music so well, so it gave you two points of focus rather than just music.”

“I was brought to tears . . . so simple but brilliant, absolutely moved to tears.”
