Cryptic Nights: Contact

Thu 26 March 2020

Award-winning composer, Matthew Grouse, in collaboration with filmmaker and visual artist Andy Sowerby, combines sight, sound and even touch in a multi-layered exploration of the body's largest sensory organ - our skin. Contact is a performance where our sense of touch is enhanced equally to that of seeing and hearing using custom-built, tactile instruments amongst more familiar ones. The artists enable you to feel music; to experience microscopic and distorted visuals reacting to both live violin and pre-recorded sounds; and for their own bodies to be an integral part of the performance.

Developed as part of Seeing Hearing UK Mexico, a three-year collaboration between the UK and Mexico made possible with the support of Anglo Arts, the cultural department of The Anglo Mexican Foundation A.C; British Council Mexico; CMMAS (Centro Mexicano para la Música y las Artes Sonoras) and Cryptic.
