CCP presents: Mary Hurrell, Hannah Ellul, Alana Frey & Jamie Green and caapi (DJ SET)

Mary Hurrell Mary Hurrell (South Africa/UK) is a Bristol based artist and musician working across experimental music, sound and performance. Mary works with her voice and body as both instruments and live materials to explore physical and psychological experience. Centering presence and the felt experience as a poetic and perceptual choreography, she tests the boundaries of movement in the body, spatial and sensory experience, as a composition in time that is unique and common to us all. Mary has presented projects with Cafe OTO, St Marks Drone Society, Jupiter Rising Festival, IKLECTIK, RTM Radio, Flat Time House, fluent, The Roberts Institute of Art, South London Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery and Bold Tendencies x Sadlers Wells. Recent artist residencies include PRAXIS organised by fluent (Spain) 2023; BrittenPears Arts (Aldeburgh) 2023; Gilfélagið / Deiglan (Iceland) 2022 and Yamakiwa Gallery (Japan) 2018. Mary is currently working on her debut album supported by Help Musicians in 2024 and is a Studio Artist at Spike Island. Hannah Ellul Glasgow-based artist. Co-runs Psykick Dancehall, expanded label/press. Makes sounds with Human Heads and White Death. Alana Frey and Jamie Green The respective improvisatory streams of Alana Frey and Jamie Green meet at an estuary of practical gnosis. Jamie (“the musician”) and Alana (“the dancer”) have witnessed their collaborations take shape in various formations, but their recurring concern is with the vertiginous integration of internal-eternal sensing and prosaic-immediate looking, pushing through visible into invisible, grass into sky, by way of SOUND and the danced secret in search of the real. Jamie is wont to proffer high-droning reeds of his own invention and construction, and rhythmic networks to furnish an elemental ground; Alana renders movement which delivers patiently through the pelvis, eyes, tips of fingers… voice some-time’s spills: altogether a spirited if novel peasant dance. In 2022, they formed SRSD together: Society for the Reunification of Sound & Dance (SRSD) is an emergent performing arts endeavor whose object is to re-establish robust and conscious mutuality between sound and movement, with the ideal of assisting in the development of new-legacy idiomatic forms. caapi (Somewhere Press DJ SET) Somewhere Press is a record label and publisher based in Glasgow.
