Divertimento for Rope & Strings (photo by John Cole)

This Thursday! ‘Divertimento’

Only one week to go until the performance, Divertimento for Rope & Strings at St Mary in the Castle. A playful and unexpected performance collaboration between prize-winning aerial artist, Gisele Edwards, an acrobat and two virtuoso classical musicians. Dominika Hicks writes.

Captivating, funny and inventive, the artists play with the musical score exploring the spaces, the silences, the dots, the lines, the dashes, the melody, along the horizontal of the stave and the vertical of the metronome. Come and join the Divertimento team for a performance, a drink and a chat.

This performance will be free, but Gisele and her fellow artists are currently running an Indiegogo campaign to close the gap between what they have and what they need to deliver the show as they would like it to be. If you would like to help Gisele please go to Divertimento for Rope and Strings Official Premiere.

Divertimento for Rope & Strings at St Mary in the Castle on Thursday 5 April, 5.30pm for 6pm. FREE. All welcome.
