Event Description

On January 13 from 1pm-4pm, The Polygon Gallery will be staging a performance of Musicircus. Musicircus was written in 1967 by legendary composer John Cage. The piece brings numerous musicians and performers together within the Gallery over the course of one afternoon. For Cage, the blurred lines between performer and listener, the lack of a dominant focal point, and the atmosphere of controlled chaos creates a democratic, inclusive piece that mirrors the amiably anarchic society he envisioned.

Performed in conjunction with Hannah Rickards’ installation One can make out the surface only by placing any dark-coloured object on the ground, and in collaboration with the Blueridge Chamber Music Festival, Musicircus is a uniquely powerful act of artistic community. Listeners also participate in the creation of the composition by moving around the venue. The event will feature compositions by Cage, including a performance on a specially prepared piano.
