Fragments in the Form of a Serial

On 10 May Mareli Stolp will be performing the world premiere of Fragments in the Form of a Serial for piano and film, with music by Michael Blake and film by Aryan Kaganof. This performance project forms part of her PhD study, and was designed to interrogate issues of intermediality, improvisation, collaboration and creativity between different types of creators and performers.

The performance begins at 18:00, and will include a short lecture and discussion. Entrance is free.

In light of discussions about ‘Practice-based Research’ and the ‘integrated PhD’, this is an opportunity to engage with a specific instance of this kind of research and to use this blog as a forum for discussion.
