The Autumn/Winter 2020 programme from Studio Will Dutta announced.


Studio Will Dutta have announced their 2020 Autumn \ Winter programme welcoming local, national, and international audiences to the second season of performances and events from their new home in East Kent.

The consumption of live performance has undergone a radical transformation in recent months.  Fortunately, Studio Will Dutta has a restless inventiveness for artistic creation and has devised a diverse programme that recreates the nuances and intimacy of a live performance for a remote audience.  The striking programme celebrates, challenges, and connects everything digital has to offer whilst maintaining the atmosphere and power of live performance. 


Commencing on 15th October, the programme offers the chance to join composer Ana Quiroga and filmmaker Pedro Maia for an exclusive premiere of their short film, Time Stands Still (2020), a striking coda to The 20/19 Project.  During the event there will be a chance to revisit their three audio-visual postcards to Kent, Three Moments (2019), followed by a Q&A, hosted by Stuart Brown, Head of Programme and Acquisitions at British Film Institute (BFI), and Will Dutta, Artistic Director at Studio Will Dutta.

In November, Studio Will Dutta will broadcast bloom LIVE/STREAM from Canterbury Christ Church University, featuring a sumptuous piano score by composer and concert pianist Will Dutta with luminous visuals by award-winning creative agency, Treatment Studio.

bloom LIVE/STREAM captures the powerful relationship between performer and audience in an experimental and innovative online broadcast. This immersive broadcast will bring exquisite real-time and audio responsive visual effects in two performances of Will’s collaborations with electronic legends Plaid, Friendly Fires frontman Ed Macfarlane and composer Max de Wardener.

The programme concludes on December 3rd with pleasure gardens showcasing Studio Will Dutta’s latest multidisciplinary work in development.  In this scratch event, audiences are encouraged to immerse themselves by putting their questions to the creative team, and to give early feedback in order to shape the next phase of this ambitious new production.  With themes and detail embargoed until the 3rd December event, this unique evening promises to deliver revelation and evoke artistic discussion.
