Colourscape Music Festival 2013 on Clapham Common
7:00am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
Come and be “wrapped in a rainbow” of colour, music and dance.
Each September a spectacular experience comes to Clapham Common.....
Colourscape is a mind-expanding experience of colour and light (a one-acre labyrinth) that you actually go inside.
Every visitor wears a coloured cape so that they become part of the experience and step into a new world where colour and sound meet.
But if that wasn't enough - there is also music, dance and theatre taking place inside! This is a full nine-day music festival where the "venue" is a one-acre walk-in labyrinth of nearly 100 interlinked chambers.
Explore for a while and you discover long views of intense colour and light. Move forwards and another view opens up - and another - and another. Musicians and dancers are found anywhere in this extraordinary space leading the public on a journey.
The festival opens on Saturday September 14th with a new version of Alice in Wonderland with musicians in costume taking the main characters.
On Sunday 15th musicians perform on new, exotic instruments. Saturday 21st a recorder quintet perform and present a new work written for children from local Clapham Manor Primary school. Sunday 22nd huge wind instruments can be found inside with dancers and harmonic flutes spreading their music and dance like "spores" on the wind.
During the weekdays - Mon Sept 16 to Fri Sept 20 there are schools workshops in Colourscape so public times are restricted to 12 to 1pm. But this is a great time to see Colourscape at a quieter time - and the admission is cheaper.
