Tura Soup Nights – New Monthly Servings of Sound at The Sewing Room
Tura Soup Nights are a new monthly serving of sound. On the second Tuesday of each month starting in August, The Sewing Room will be the home of new sounds from sonic artists from both near and far. They are a platform for new curators and new cross-disciplinary collaborations. A place for artists from different backgrounds and art forms to meet, share ideas and make new connections.
Soup Night 1, on Tuesday 13 August sees dance and music combine in conversation ahead of September’s Beyond the Bounds, 30 years of Difficult Listening featuring collaborations both old and new. In October Greywing present new and existing chamber music works before Michael Terren takes over in November with a night of experimental Electronica. December’s edition will close off the year with an end of year musical celebration to take us into 2020.
Soup Night 1, curated by Tura’s curatorial intern Annika Moses, is an evening of evolving club beats, off-kilter house, and elusive positions in a conversation between improvised movement and experimental electronic music. This club-night-gone-weird features live sets from local electronic musicians paired with live improvised dance from movement artists. Sounds from Lana Rothnie, Ben Aguero and Hi. Ok, Sorry. Shapes from Olivia Hendry, Lilly King, Jacinta Larcombe and Umairah Murtaza. Multivalent voicings drift up from the basement; motions becoming below; sounds and shapes in odd conversation.
Tickets are only available at the door and are $15 with a special industry price of $5 for Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) students, UWA Music students (UWA Conservatorium of Music), as well as STRUT Dance, Ausdance, WAM and The Blue Room Theatre members.
