Sō Percussion in conversation with Amber Films
Mining Institute, Newcastle (map)
Tuesday 28 November 2017, 7.30pm
Tickets: FREE

Brooklyn-based contemporary percussion group Sō Percussion present an audio-visual exploration of the social history of British coal mining in From Out a Darker Sea. For two centuries, the coal industry formed the backbone of many towns and cities across England. Entire communities sprang into existence as fervent mining activity fuelled the industrial revolution. Integrating art, narrative, photography, film and an original musical soundscape performed live, Sō Percussion – known for their innovative and original productions – capture the environment, personal stories, and aspirations of a community fighting against industrial decline.

Born out of a collaboration between the quartet and Amber Films, From Out a Darker Sea is inspired by the reinvention of East Durham after the crushing loss of its mining industry. Combining live performance with community education programmes, Sō Percussion are bringing From Out a Darker Sea to sacred spaces in former coal mining areas, from Derby to Deal, this Autumn.

Sō Percussion will also be in conversation with Amber Films, exploring the themes of From Out a Darker Sea, at the Mining Institute, Newcastle, on Tuesday 28 November, 7.30pm. The talk is free, and all performance tickets include entry.

From Out a Darker Sea is presented at St John the Baptist Church, Newcastle, co-produced by the Sacred Spaces Network Project, produced by Forma and supported by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring programme and the Foyle Foundation.
