Mixing the genres of music, spoken text and silent film, Counterpoise and Johanna Lonsky present a compellingly macabre sequence embracing the haunted sensibility of Edgar Allan Poe, vampire myth and the sultry self-indulgence of Cleopatra's court. Features music by Kagel and John Casken. Counterpoise is a new ensemble consisting of some of the most sought-after instrumentalists in the UK. It was formed to give the first performances of On the Edge by Edward Rushton, with the aim of crossing genres, exploring the relationship between music, poetry and visual elements, and seeking also to develop aspects of narrative and other extra-musical influences.
