The Broken Orchestra: Riparian

Sat, 18 March 2023


Ferens Art Gallery, Hull - HU1 3RA


A unique, intimate and immersive live music performance composed by The Broken Orchestra featuring poetry and spoken word from Vicky Foster. Inspired by the ever-changing landscape along the river Hull with vocals from Sarah Johns and live instrumentation from Tom Kay (Guitars), Steph Halsey (Harp) and Gary Hammond (Percussion), this one time performance explores our connection to living alongside water and the multifaceted historical lives we have led.

Immersed in spatialised sound and featuring archive film projections.

Riparian takes place inside Ferens Art Gallery in The Studio. One performance only, starting at: 20:00 18th March.

No tickets or reservations are necessary to attend this performance, although we expect it to be popular and there is limited capacity.
