This unique performance is the second key work by William Kentridge to be presented at the Print room, following on from 2015’s Ubu and the Truth Commission.
From the 9th to the 14th October, Paper Music will explore the relationship between image and sound through animations based on William Kentridge’s charcoal and ink drawings along with Philip Miller’s composition performed live with the help of vocalists Ann Masina and Joanna Dudley as well as pianist Vincenzo Pasquariello.
This new cine-concert is the latest collaboration between Johannesburg-born Kentridge and his South African compatriot, composer Philip Miller. Their ongoing professional partnership dates back to Kentridge’s 1993 film Felix in Exile, which was part of his Soho Eckstein series for which Miller wrote the score.
The performances at the Print Room will coincide with Kentridge’s first major public solo exhibition titled Thick Time, which will be on display at the Whitechapel Gallery from the 21st September until the 15th January 2017.
Paper Music will be performed at the Print Room at the Coronet from the 9th to the 14th October. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.the-print-room.org/theatre/autumn-2016/paper-music/
