6.30pm marionette, Manteia and Jessica Wilkinson
Jessica Wilkinson’s marionette, a poetic biography of the silent film actress Marion Davies, uses fragments of text, sound and broken narratives, to provide glimpses of a story shrouded in myth and rumour. Developed in collaboration with Manteia, a new music ensemble committed to finding new modes of chamber performance, marionette’s diverse sonic palette focus on ways to integrate sound, text and performance.
Jessica Wilkinson (text), Jenny Barnes (voice), Kim Tan (flutes) Matthew Horsely (percussion) and Simon Charles (composer and director).
