After Yeats: Two realisations by Lucia d'Errico

Activity: Talk or presentationPerformance


_After Yeats_ describes a collaboration between a performer, who declaims a Yeats poem in translation, self-accompanied by a plucked string instrument, and a composer, who works at a remove to observe and amplify the implications of the declamation. The conception is by William Brooks; Lucia d'Errico performed two realisations, accompanying herself on the Baroque guitar; one was composed by Davide Sibilia, the other by herself. The performance was preceded by a brief introduction given by William Brooks.
