Rituals to Mould her with


Rituals to Mould Her With is a conceptual stage work inspired by the musical ritual that celebrated the Virgin Mary in early-medieval Spain. The composers and performance artists drew material from 1100-year-old manuscripts and engaged with cutting-edge research at the University of Bristol. The piece has a strong theatrical, choreographical and directorial style, fusing music for harpsichord, electronics, percussion and found objects with theatre and movement. Created in 2016 by Effy Efthymiou and Litha Efthymiou.
