Soapwort

Composer Ryan Latimer has written the music for a dance piece, SOAPWORT, performed by Jade Brider and filmed by Kristian Šantić with music performed by members of the Workers Union Ensemble (Anna Durance – Cor Anglais, Ellie Steemson– Saxophone, Caz Wolfson – Percussion, Joley Cragg – Percussion, Edward Pick – Piano, Mercedes Cartwright – Double Bass). 

The work is described thus: 

"Uprooted from the cracks of tarmac and fern flitches, the SOAPWORT slinks and glitches through liquid life, full-suds and fanciful. Dappled with dew and sewer stains, this windpuff-bonnet of folly-froth reigns and self-seeds in a world of wet concrete and weeds."

Ryan Latimer's Antiarke came out on NMC Recordings last Autumn, "Playful, complex, brightly characterful with a vivid sense of rhythm", see my review.
