After Yeats: two realisations by Nguyen Thanh Thuy

Activity: Talk or presentationPerformance

William Brooks - Invited speaker

_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; Nguyen Thanh Thuy performed two realisations, accompanying herself on the dan tranh; one was composed by Henrik Frisk, the other by William Brooks. The performance was preceded by a brief introduction given by William Brooks.
