Activities: Productions & Open Spaces




Productions & Open Spaces


The productions presented in Sounds Now all relate to one of four  themes of inclusion: gender/gender identity, ethnicity, socioeconomic background and audience. This does not mean that each work has an “agenda”, but rather that it exemplifies, in whatever way the artist wishes, an attempt to step outside the usual themes and representations commonly seen today. Our criteria exist to ensure that the productions presented do not reproduce the usual patterns of representation; however, within that safeguard, artists have total creative freedom.

Open Spaces

Open Spaces are productions that directly engage the audience in the creative process. Local communities new to music work with a curating team to create a musical work that may be presented at a partner’s music festival. Although a quality artistic result is a goal, the priority is to create a meaningful musical experience for audiences. Open Spaces represent a safe zone for testing different techniques that will be re-tested in different cultural contexts.
