Join us at the National Maritime Museum for a mesmerising evening of live music with Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
This special performance features a reimagined performance of Vivaldi’s masterpiece The Four Seasons alongside composer Hollie Harding’s immersive work Melting, Shifting, Liquid World.
In the open space of the Great Map, performers and audience members are free to flow together, uniting in a thought-provoking evening of music, motion, nature and the environment.
Book tickets online via the Trinity Laban website, and find out more about the event below.
Vivaldi’s Four Seasons
From the bird song of spring to the cracking of ice in winter, Vivaldi captures the extraordinary sounds of the changing seasons in his iconic work.
This new interpretation is devised by Nic Pendlebury and directed by Anna Morrissey combining music, sound and movement to bring the score to life: the seasons as they should be.
Melting, Shifting, Liquid World
First performed in 2019 and created especially for the Great Map, Hollie Harding’s Melting, Shifting, Liquid World looks at the fragility of our modern world. Where melting ice caps and the pollution of the sea threaten our very existence, Harding’s work imagines the seasons as they may become.
For this performance audience members will be provided with bone conduction headphones, which allow listeners to hear recorded sounds without blocking the eardrums. These recordings combine with the soloist and string ensemble to add another layer to Harding's evocative composition. Bone conduction headphones kindly provided by Shokz.
