Extremely Pedestrian Chorales at Findhorn Bay Festival
Extremely Pedestrian Chorales presents the prosaic and commonplace experience of the pedestrian as an act of beauty, meaning and gentle comedy. The work takes its form and structure from the sublime harmonies of JS Bach’s famous Chorales – pitching them into our present-day lives with just a dash of punk-ish irreverence and 18th Century powder wigs. A beguiling mix of high and low art, Extremely Pedestrian Chorales explores some of the multifarious roles and movement languages of the pedestrian.
