ON WHAT WEFT ARE WOVEN THE WATERS

A MONUMENTAL NEW WORK FROM COMPOSER/PERFORMER ROLF HIND IN A REALISATION BY FREDERIC WAKE-WALKER AND COMMISSIONED BY HCMF//

The vast, poetic, hallucinatory Vedas – the writings of early Hindu civilisation – were, and are, kept alive by human memories and repetition, where no earthly traces survive of the culture they sprang from. On what weft are woven the waters is a piece about memory, ritual, sacrifice, and the constant remaking of the oldest things through the magical symbolism of sound. 

World Premiere:
19 November 2017, 8pm
Bates Mill, hcmf

Commissioned by hcmf// with funds from the Nicholas Berwin Charitable Trust
Produced by hcmf//
Co-produced by Mahogany Opera Group*
Benefactors Roz Brown and Colin Rose

*Supported through our Various Stages programme. Through Various Stages we are committed to nurturing and developing new, boundary-pushing opera and the next generation of innovative artists.
