Ecstatic Dances | Manchester Collective
presented by CLF Art Cafe

Fri 17 Jan, 8.00pm

Poul Høxbro has been called “the great man of small instruments”. He’s an endlessly fascinating and inspiring musician - a Danish master of ancient flutes and bells, of bones and drums.

While building the show, MC had a moment when they realised that this combination of instruments has literally never been heard before. The set MC are presenting is all new - terrifyingly, ink-barely-dry new. Ancient music, brought vividly to life for 21st century ears.

Rounding out the artistic team for the project is composer Paul Clark, who will be writing new music for the show. Paul makes his Manchester Collective debut fresh off the back of a hugely successful collaboration with Renee Fleming and Ben Whishaw at The Shed in New York.

Ecstatic Dances is kindly supported by Arts Council England and the RVW Charitable Trust.
