March 31 | April 1The Depot @ The Complex, Dublin
Three concerts featuring Irish artists & musicians Sharon Phelan, Rob Casey & Cora Venus Lunny alongside legendary free jazz pianist Pat Thomas, Scottish composer Phil Maguire, Black Truffle recording artist Julia Ready & celebrated Australian cellist Judith Hamann.
Since 2016 Reception has presented concerts focusing on cutting edge experimental music & performance. They have sought out new music & sound pieces which evade easy categorisation, often blurring the lines between composition & improvisation, performance & installation. Reception Weekend is their most ambitious and wide-ranging programme to date bringing together composers and performers from three continents.
A special Reception Weekend commission presents the international debut of renowned multidisciplinary artist Mark Fell & virtuoso percussionist Mohammad Reza Mortazavi in a duo combining electronics & Persian percussion.
Reception Weekend is curated by David Lacey & Aonghus McEvoy and has been made possible with the generous support of the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
