Memory and reflection run through this evening of rhythmic, dancing music. Reich’s powerful, haunting Different Trains weaves the recorded recollections of Pullman Porters, a 1940s nanny and holocaust survivors through the colours of the string quartet, while Martland’s work for marimba and quartet dances through memories of Africa beneath a starry sky.
Parabola Arts Centre is located in a Grade II listed building in the glamorous Montpellier district of Cheltenham. The centre was built as a facility for students of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and to be used as a public arts centre by the local community.
The original, listed Bayshill House was transformed into a gallery, bar and foyer area. The villa also houses all the rehearsal spaces, offices, video editing suite, dance studio and library. This means that the regular activity of the building takes place in the light, beautifully restored listed building.
