Neville Gabie & David Ogden: Cabot Circus Cantata

Performance, book launch and film screening

Tue 10 Jun 7.00pm

£5.00 / £3.00 concs

Cabot Circus is a large retail, leisure and office development in Bristol’s city centre. The Cantata is an original musical score inspired by the huge variety of traditional songs submitted by construction workers on the site, representing 60 nationalities. Excerpts of the Cantata will be performed live and together with DVD footage documenting this unique participatory public art project which was first performed on site by the City of Bristol Choir.

Commissioned by InSite Arts on behalf of the Bristol Alliance, Neville Gabie is artist in residence during the redevelopment of Cabot Circus. In addition to developing his own work, Neville instigated bs1 which involves temporary projects from six other artists.
