21 SEPT, 8PM
+ CONCESSIONS AVAILABLE
2022 UK exclusive of Jon Hopkins’ Polarity.
This not to be missed performance brings together the two disparate elements of harsh and fragile in his music and by going between the two, creates some profound moments of stillness.
Playing grand piano for parts of the show, Hopkins will be joined on stage by long-time friends – acclaimed producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams, violinist and arranger Emma Smith and cellist Daisy Vatalaro.
An electronic artist, producer and classically trained composer, Hopkins’ solo and collaborative works have received widespread acclaim, as well as Grammy, Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello nominations.
Recently cited by The New Yorker as “One of the most celebrated electronic musicians of his generation”, he initially gained exposure through his work with Brian Eno, Coldplay and King Creosote in the mid-2000s before gradually finding his voice as a solo artist.
Hopkins has forged a reputation for music which marries the dance floor to the devotional, and for live performances that are visceral, generous and charged with a rapt, sensuous beauty. His output flows from rugged techno to transcendent choral music, from solo acoustic piano to psychedelic ambient.
Please note that this show will contain use of flashing lights.
Supporting Jon Hopkins is an incredible piece by Rebecca Smith. This 30-minute piece will leave you breathless as you are taken on journey of exploration as we question the fingerprint of humanity on the Anthropocene, whilst celebrating the beauty of our interconnection to the natural world.
