About Found Spaces
At Greengage, we believe that digital performances should be digital for a reason: not just because performers and audiences can't go to traditional venues right now. So we match brilliant, adventurous and open-minded artists with video production and digital experts to find ways that video editing, sound engineering, animation and online delivery formats can add something new to a performance.
The four concerts in this series are varied in style but there are common threads. They are all new and made since July 2020. All are directed by British conductor Jonathan Berman. They all bring together classical music with visual art. All are performed in unusual spaces (for concerts): a yoga studio, a former cardboard factory and an art gallery. All use digital technology to create experiences beyond what can be achieved in traditional physical venues or with solely in-person audiences. All are in high definition sound and film.
I am so excited to share these digital performances with you, wherever you may be. We have put together a calendar of online and in-person events so that people can experience these digital performances in different ways. Whatever your choice, you'll be joining a community of forward-thinking fans of culture and the arts. It's going to be a long winter, and it's a difficult time for the arts. Let's all come together -- even if we are physically apart -- and celebrate positivity and resilience in the arts. We've found that if you look for it, it's there.
All the artists in these productions were paid for their work. Ticket sales ensure that Greengage can continue making paid work for artists and bringing audiences to these online shows.
