Experience "Etudes: Amsterdam" @ Battersea Arts Centre

This is a sponsored post on behalf of BAC.

John Moran, the acclaimed New York theatrical composer comes to Battersea Arts Centre with a new solo work, Etudes: Amsterdam.

Using everyday conversation and sound as the basis of a musical score, Moran tells the tale of losing oneself as a touring artist.

His method is unique — miming and lipsynching live onstage in a series of movements which has often been practised up to three thousand times before showing them to an audience. The effect is unsettling, intermittently hilarious and otherworldly.

This radical performance follows the composer on a journey through floods in Bangkok and drug-infused procrastination in Amsterdam, introducing a range of venerable and humorous characters along the way. Moran embodies a waltzing Italian man, a ten year-old boy, and an English gentleman. He even offers a self-portrait of his own struggle to create the work.

Intimate, unsettling, comic and extraordinary don't miss this opportunity to see this elegant music-theatre performance.

Etudes: Amsterdam is at Battersea Arts Centre from 30 August – 1 September at 7.30pm (Thurs & Sat) & 9pm (Fri). Tickets 10 (£8 previews). Book online at www.bac.org.uk or call 020 7223 2223.
