Imaginative and talented pianist Késia Decoté invites all to her PhD final show myths and visions at Oxford Brookes University:

Myths and visions will be a piano/body performance of pieces for extended piano techniques, a journey to imaginary worlds of myths and illusory images.  It will include works by composers Henry Cowell, John Cage, Marisa Rezende and João de Sousa Carvalho.

There will be three sessions: 21st (9.15pm), 22nd (7.25pm) and 23rd June (6.00pm) in Oxford.  Please find more information on my website: https://kesiadecote.wordpress.com/2017/05/29/myths-visions-piano-body-performance/

Please book your seats well in advance (there are only 12 seats per session) by emailing me at kesiadecote@gmail.com

In your booking I will give you personalised information about meeting point and about the performance itself (there are some moments that you will be asked to move from one place to another, but that will be nice and easy, I promise 🙂 )

I have the honour to have Joëlle Pappas as my movement director in this project, and the amazing support of Oxford Brookes Sonic Art Research Unit SARU.  My PhD research has been kindly sponsored by CNPq – Brazil.

I will be delighted to have you with me in this culmination of a journey!”

A chance to see one of Oxford’s most engaging and idiosyncratic dancers, Flavia Coube, in an evening hommage to two composers who have challenged, inspired and influenced numerous choreographers…  OVADA Stammtisch presents An evening with… John Cage, Erik Satie and Oxford Improvisers this week at the OVADA Gallery.  Oxford Improvisers write:  “It being neither the centenary of Erik Satie nor John Cage (nor of any calendrical significance to either), Oxford Improvisers are celebrating the work of two of the most iconoclastic composers of the twentieth century with an evening of entertainment featuring members of the collective as well as guest dancers, visual artists and the virtual presence of Satie and Cage in film and verbal recording.” (more…)
