Liverpool is a city built on stories, and sometimes the old ones are the newest of all. In ancient Greece, Athanasia Kontou’s Antigone (Rushworth Composition Prize winner 2019) appeals to an authority higher than human law. Way out West, John Adams’s Roadrunner dodges that wily coyote. And here in Liverpool, where the old world speaks with the new, we spin legends of our own. Carmel Smickersgill has worked with New Order; Tansy Davies wrestles modern myths out of neon and steel. We don’t yet know exactly what they’ll say tonight, just that it demands to be heard.

Enjoy this performance in Ensemble 10/10’s brand new home, The Tung Auditorium.
