NAJIA BAGI ANNOUNCES WORLD PREMIERE OF NEW LIVE PERFORMANCE INSTALLATION MOVE ME, EXPLORING LOVE AND RELATIONSHIPS
Najia Bagi: Move Me
Fri 3 March, Club BIG open from 18:00 / performance from 19:00
New live performance installation by Manchester-based musician & artist Move Me presents a collaborative performance with the Sacred Sounds Women’s Choir, and singer & writer Ruby-Ann Patterson.
Presented as part of CLUB BIG, a fully kitted-out pop-up music club introducing the best breakthrough live music and performance in tandem with John Hyatt’s current Rock Art exhibition at HOME, Manchester
Supported by HOME, Manchester, and Manchester Jazz Festival, musician and artist Najia Bagi is delighted to present the world premiere of Move Me, a live performance installation inviting audiences to discover and connect with the experiences of others.
During the project which inspired this performance, Bagi received weekly letters for six months from three participants, connecting the artist to the transformation that each person was experiencing as a single person who was looking for love. For Move Me, Bagi will bring these letters alive through music and performance.
With live performances by Najia Bagi, the Sacred Sounds Women’s Choir, which came to life as part of the Manchester International Festival Creative programme in 2013, and precocious singer, writer and creative activist Ruby-Ann Patterson, Move Me will be performed in CLUB BIG in HOME’s ground floor art gallery, part of John Hyatt’s current exhibition Rock Art - introducing the best breakthrough live music and performance every Friday from 18:00 – 21:00 (until Fri 17 Mar).Read More at www.facebook.com
