Les Diaboliques - Maggie Nicols, Joëlle Léandre and Irène Schweizer.
Wed 16 November 2016, 20:00 – 23:00 GMT
Since the late 1970s the trio have been at the vanguard of feminist engagements with free improvisation.
Schweizer and Nicols were members of the iconic Feminist Improvising Group (FIG) and performed with Léandre in the European Women's Improvising Group. They formed Les Diaboliques in 1990.
Nicols, Léandre and Schweizer have collaborated with many of the leading figures in free improvisation such as Pauline Oliveros, John Stevens, Evan Parker, Derek Bailey, Anthony Braxton and Phil Minton.
In Les Diaboliques Nicols, Schweizer and Léandre's incomparable personalities combine to invent music of depth, unpredictability, intensity and delirious humour.
This tour is the first – and last – opportunity to see Les Diaboliques perform in England.
