Reuniting to sing together for the first time in 15 months, NYX and Gazelle Twin gather at Grade 2 listed building, Shoreditch Town Hall to perform an abridged version of their critically acclaimed album, Deep England.

Rooted in English pagan and sacred music, Deep England is an electronic-choral expansion of Gazelle Twin’s 2018 album Pastoral (Anti-Ghost Moon Ray). Here, tracks from Pastoral, an album whose political themes have only intensified since its original release, are radically reworked and presented alongside music arrangements by NYX Music Director Sian O'Gorman, Paul Giovanni and William Blake.

As part of our Between the Lines Festival and supported by Arts Council England, BAFTA nominated film directors and artists, Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard will capture this special performance in collaboration with Movement Director Imogen Knight, Sound Associate Peter Rice. and Lighting Designer Gillian Tan

With a focus on the choral works of Deep England, Gazelle Twin and NYX singers summon a powerful and often dreamlike Jarman-esque depiction of a country divided by its many selves.

A timeless piece of avant-garde performance art, part catharsis and part exorcism
