In The Nursery tours The Passion of Joan of Arc

In The Nursery’s premiere performance at Sheffield Cathedral was a festival highlight for many. The subsequent international tour has taken In The Nursery to the Wave Gothic Festival in Leipzig where they played to audiences of 1200. Co-commissioners The Barbican saw the Sheffield-based duo play to a sell out crowd in June and since then they have performed the new score at Dokufest in Kosovo, MOFFOM Festival, Prague, the Silent Movie Theatre in Los Angeles and St. Martin’s Cathedral, Leicester.
2009 will see them presenting the score in San Francisco, Madrid and Hong Kong.

The CD soundtrack is on sale now and available via iTunes.
A great legacy for the first edition of Sensoria.

About Sensoria

Sensoria is the UK’s festival of film and music. Sensoria’s natural home is Sheffield – a city renowned for its creative and technical innovation and one rich in musical heritage. The festival has risktaking and innovation at its core – it is informal and informative; Sensoria loves to provide access, raise aspiration and work to encourage new talent on an ongoing basis.

We hope you enjoyed the April programme, a heady mix of screenings, performance, talks, events and exhibitions but keep checking throughout the year as we present Sensoria Teasers – events, activities and collaborations as and when the opportunity arises.
