Event description
'Whale Song' : live premier performance of music for poetry at Arbroath Fish Market with Lesley Harrison, Katherine Wren and Alex South

About this event

Join us for this special live event as part of Arbroath2020+1.

The premier of 'Whale Song' contemporary music and poetry

In the fish market Arbroath.

A new collaborative performance of music and poetry inspired by whale song, devised by poet Lesley Harrison with viola player Katherine Wren and clarinettist Alex South.

Katherine and Alex have composed new pieces around the poetry from Lesley’s recent collection, ‘Disappearance’.

This performance explores the theme of the voyage of the 19th-century whalers to the polar seas, and the cultural aftermath of the whaling industry.

A special screening of CETACEA will follow the live performance.

The trio’s music and words meet with marine biologist Michael Scheer’s recordings of pilot whales and Alexander and Nicole Gratovsky’s underwater footage to create the piece CETACEA.

Due to the change in social distancing we are now only holding one performance:

Sunday 8 August at 12 noon
