Colourscape at Midland Arts Centre, Birmingham

Thursday May 17th to Sunday May 20th

Eye Music Trust presents SYMPHONY OF THE SENSES at the Midland Arts Centre in Cannon Hill Park

Our new Touring show features all the senses. Come into the intense COLOUR AND LIGHT of Colourscape and hear music that represents the musical SOUNDS of the human body. Our dancer plays TOUCH-Surfaces and releases FRAGRANCES and TASTES into the flowing air within Colourscape. This show is funded by the Arts Council Strategic Touring Fund and has been created by composers Simon Desorgher, Lawrence Casserley, David Stevens and Michael Ormiston. With movement and fragrances created by dancer Tanya Richam-Odoi and theatrical performer Francisca Picon Asensio

Colourscape will be installed in Cannon Hill Park for the four days. Thursday and Friday will be workshop days for local schools with a lunchtime preview time for the public to experience Colourscape without music at a lower admission price.
