Other Tempo is a live sculpture.
A coloured score drapes, dances and reveals an assembly of performance instruments, where sharp notes are highlighted against the skins.
The music speaks to history and memory, played until a complete cycle has been heard.
This score moves in phases. The music warms up, warms down by dancing.
Other Tempo challenges the way we hear, see and think about sound and feminist performance.
The piece invites you to experience with the whole body: the modified environment with careful colour and sound design stimulates a visceral experience within the architecture.
