Laura Cannell’s Modern Ritual is on tour in April, May and June 2018. An assembled collective of musicians and writers respond to what the concept Modern Ritual means to them through words and music.

[Modern Ritual] – is a night of new performances exploring ideas of ritual through music and words, evoking real and fictional landscapes. Charles Hayward (This Heat, TINTH) performs his 30 MINUTE SNARE DRUM ROLL, medieval experimentalist performer/composer Laura Cannell plays newly composed works playing two recorders simultaneously and deconstructing her violin bow to create otherworldly soundscapes, Hoofus (aka André Bosman) an electronic composer produces music where oscillating melodies meld with distorted rhythms exploring machine and marsh.

Writer/researcher Jennifer Lucy Allan performs her piece ‘Fowlis’s Daughter: A Short History of the Foghorn in 30 Interrupted Acts’, and Luke Turner, writer and co-founder of The Quietus reads extracts from his forthcoming book ‘Out of the Woods’ exploring concepts of masculinity and sexuality, civilisation and wilderness.

The cast is joined in Liverpool by Ex-Easter Island Head, and Swansea by Rhodri Davies, they are also joined by guests for their collaborative piece ‘These We Hold Close, These we Hold Dear’. (see selected individual listings).

Launched at Café Oto in 2017, [Modern Ritual] has since been awarded Arts Council of England National Lottery Funding to support the following UK dates.
