An evening of many delights beckons next Saturday 5th April at an unusual Oxford venue, St Columba’s Church.  Oxford based company MUE (dance/sound/light) join forces with French melodeon stars Emmanuel Pariselle and Christian Maes in concert.

M U E is a dance/music  collaboration which started in Oxford in 2010 between Macarena Ortuzar (dance), Dariusz Dziala (light), Bruno Guastalla (cello/electronics/bandoneon).
MUE: shedding of skin.  The direction the group is following is an attempt at an equal creative partnership, where movement, light and sound can fluidly work towards an animation of the given space. Their different vantage points, histories and techniques are all brought to the space and situation.  Shape and erosion of shape seem to take place as a result.  For this performance MUE are joined by guest Paul Medley  on bass clarinet.

Emmanuel Pariselle and Christian Maes are two first-class performers from the French traditional music scene.  They play music from the folk traditions of Brittany and other regions of France, but do not shy away from many other influences.  They have a huge following in France, and Emmanuel’s soulful and nostalgic song writing is a delight.
