The line-up for this year’s Angel Field Festival has been revealed - and it’s set to take audiences on a ‘creative and expressive voyage of discovery’.
The festival, organised by Liverpool Hope University and now in its second year, boasts a rich and varied programme featuring immersive music, film, theatre, dance, visual art and storytelling.
Running from 6th to 14th February, there will be performances from the Pagoda Chinese Youth Orchestra and the Liverpool Mozart Orchestra.
Liverpool-based theatre company Teatro Pomodoro will star in Cabaret From The Shadows, a ‘political, comic, sexy and strange’ show described as a ‘kaleidoscope of dark comedy, satire and live music that will take you on a journey through a crazy hall of mirrors.’
There will also be an ‘ambient classical and electronic’ music show, Drift Chamber, from composer/arranger Joe Duddell and producer/sound designer Lex Shellard, fresh from their recent appearance on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction.
And it’s set to climax with a Valentine’s Day performance from The Phil Shotton Big Band, who will be playing ‘some of the most romantic of music’ from legends like Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton and Count Basie.
Hope’s Creative Campus and Capstone Theatre will play host to many of the shows.
And it’s a result of collaborations with the likes of TATE Liverpool and The Warehouse Theatre, alongside performances from Hope students and alumni.
Professor Stephen Davismoon, Artistic Director, said: “The Festival builds upon the distinct tradition of culture and arts of the City of Liverpool.
“Our Angel Field Festival aims always to delight, challenge, captivate and exhilarate, with its varied and diverse content, celebrating excellence in the arts in a fully inclusive environment.
“It provides an exciting addition to Liverpool’s cultural calendar celebrating local and international artists - combining music, theatre, dance, film, visual art and story-telling.”
