Past Event

This event was on Sat 20 Jul 2019, 7-10pm

Fragments of overheard personal conversations are sung live by opera singer Marie Vasconi, in a performance by Laure Prouvost that plays with our perception of privacy. First performed at Frieze Art Fair 2018 and now relocated to a local pub famous for its East End artist patrons, the piece humorously trespasses in the social contexts of art. Drop in between 7-10pm and you could hear your chat interpreted into spontaneous opera.
