ON After Hours: Rite

14 Jan — 1 Apr 2019 (exc 18 Feb)

This event has passed.

Join ON After Hours this January and celebrate the unconventional.

Drawing on themes of nature, mystery and rituals, you will explore singing, body percussion and physicality, inspired by Stravinsky’s ground-breaking The Rite of Spring, which was said to have caused a riot on its premiere.

Over the course of the project you will have the opportunity to work with vocal leader Matt, and a guest movement artist, to create a brand new performance piece.

Paid Termly

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have experience of singing?
Some singing experience would be beneficial, as we will be singing in parts, however if you haven’t sung much previously and would like to give it a go please do come along! Our leaders and musicians are there to support you.

Do I need to be able to read music?
Experience in using a vocal score is beneficial but not a requirement. Although we do use sheet music in our workshops, each piece will be taught by ear by our vocal leader, so even those with absolutely no music reading skills can take part.

Do I need to be able to dance?
We will work with a guest movement artist to explore physicality and movement. You will not be required to learn choreography or take part in dance routines. No previous movement experience is necessary.

Who do I contact if I have any questions?
For more information, please contact Hayley McColl, Lifelong Learning Manager: hayley.mccoll@operanorth.co.uk or call 0113 223 3623.

Recent projects...

The Northern Lights provided the theme for the ON After Hours sessions at Headrow House in Autumn 2018. Taking inspiration from Nordic and Baltic legends and sagas, as well as the natural phenomenon itself, the group worked together to create a fantastic new performance piece combining singing and storytelling. Visiting artists included a loop pedal specialist who showed the participants how to build up layers of sound to compose a spine-tingling score.
