    Manchester Collective Presents: Sirocco

    Sonic Arts Research Centre



    Following their captivating performance of Schoenberg's Perriot Lunaire last November at Belfast's Sonic Lab, Moving On Music once more bring Manchester Collective to the most immersive acoustic space in Ireland.

    Having formed in 2016 order to, in their words, “create radical human experience through live music for everyone”, this is an unmissable opportunity to experience Manchester Collective’s vision and thrilling approach first-hand. Sirocco is pure joy and energy – a storm of music that celebrates the warmth and diversity of folk traditions from across the globe. This is music for the people, by the people, covering everything from director Abel Selaocoe’s arrangements for solo cello, to beloved classics by Stravinsky and Haydn; from original African folk music to a collection of gorgeous Danish folk songs.

    The production – based on 21 French poems tussling with violence, gender, madness, dreams and trauma – will be guided by NTS Radio/BBC Radio 6 Music broadcaster, Elizabeth Alker, whose presence will lend the evening an edge. Check out Selacoe's 'Sollima Lamentatio'.

    Tickets for the event are priced at £12 (£8 concession) and can be booked here. Doors open at 7.45pm.
