Join us for the launch of Programme 2 of Visions in the Nunnery with lead artists Webb-Ellis and a live performance from Phil Minton’s celebrated Feral Choir.
Visions is the Nunnery is the Gallery’s biennial celebration of international moving image and for this 13th edition the exhibition is split across two varying programmes. Programme 2 is led by British Canadian filmmakers Webb-Ellis, who are known for their unique and boundary-pushing methods of collaboration and working. Visions presents the London premiere of their 2022 film This Place is a Message, which imagines a world in which young people are seers and prophets, guiding us through our turbulent times.
Internationally acclaimed experimental vocalist Phil Minton will lead a performance of his legendary Feral Choir to mark the programme launch. Made up of people from all backgrounds, the temporary choir will improvise live, creating sounds which stretch the potential of the human voice. Together with other collaborators, Minton worked with the young people featured in the Webb-Ellis film.
If you’d like to take part in Phil Minton’s Feral Choir, he’ll be running a free feral choir workshop earlier in the day for participants, find out more here.
The performance will start at approximately 7.30pm. Drinks will be available from the Nunnery Café throughout.
