Preview: St John Sessions w/ Actress


When: 29 August
Where: St John at Hackney Church
Tickets: £14

Since June, Moringa have been curating a monthly series of audio-visual nights called St John Sessions, that brings together visionaries in electronic music, dance, art and film, under the roof of St John at Hackney Church. Previous guests have included William Basinski and Nils Frahm, and this month welcomes Darren Cunningham (a.k.a Actress). The ex-West Brom footballer, turned electronic producer caused a stir recently by disclosing the tracklist of his fourth LP, Ghettoville, the follow-up to the highly-aclaimed RIP. This week sees him embarking on his most ambitious live project to date. Produced by Cunningham’s Werkhaus creative group, the night will see Actress join forces with artists Eddie Peak and Nic Hamilton in an unprecedented collaboration for all three. Titled ‘A shared cultural memory’, the piece will explore the “decomposition of faith and truth” in a multidisciplinary performance featuring music, performed art and visuals. For fans of Actress, it’s a chance to see his creative talent explored in a way never seen before and for newcomers it will be an evening of electronic music like no other.

Tickets are still available at the St John Sessions website.
