Dates and times

Saturday 9 November 2019
7:00PM - 8:00PM

Part of SONICA Glasgow 2019

Musical collective Hong Kong Exile present a unique work in which a trio of classical pianists collaborates, and sometimes competes, in a hybrid of musical composition and live-action computer gaming that redefines the notion of play. An array of supporting machinery and output devices transmits and interferes with the trio’s virtuosic performance, testing them to react in real time and improvise to its randomly generated interruptions. Poetry written by Xu Lizhi, a former employee of the infamous Taiwanese tech firm Foxconn, cuts through the performance in shocks and starts, giving a key to this frenetic, unnerving and very contemporary work.

Commissioned by: PuSH International Performing Arts Festival presented as part of Sonica Glasgow 2019
Supported by: Canada Council for the Arts & The Canadian High Commission, London
