11 October was one of the most amazing evenings in my life consisting of the Grand Finale of DAD’s War & Peace programme.
Joanna Jones’ work, Re-veil-le, with music by Mihailo Trandafilovski was stunning. There was such a close rapport between the music and the slowly developing image, wonderfully put together by Dominic de Vere, that it is hard to imagine the work not being shown with the music, though I think it would work well too. It is not often that music and image work like this: neither form dominated – the music was not accompaniment and the filmic painting was not backdrop. (photo:Miles Umney)
Nigel Clarke’s Dogger Fisher German Bight Humber Thames Dover Wight was incredibly emotional, bringing tears to my eyes for no other reason than the piece being itself.
