Posted in Events by Pippa on September 12, 2008

Venue: Coventry Cathedral

Date: Saturday 8 Nov 2008 (Free),

Time: 7pm-9.30pm

Audio-visual installation, live performance & reception. Coventry Peace Month.

This project engages with the resident narratives of consecrated sites of war and memory. Working with the composers Nitin Sawhney and Francis Silkstone, together with the poet and film director Kuldip Powar, the research project – in the form of an installation and a live performance – is a creative response to exclusionary narrations of the nation, from the perspective of post-coloniality.
