Improviser, performer and composer Faye MacCalman is collecting responses to inform a brand-new audio-visual installation she is creating for Cheltenham Jazz Festival 2022.
Invisible, Real will challenge the stigma and stereotypes surrounding mental illness. At Cheltenham Jazz Festival, audiences will visit a subconscious dream-zone space where mental illness and inner worlds are explored, including anonymous contributions from the public.
To take part in an anonymous survey (open until 4 September) which will inspire the music and visuals, follow this link
Faye MacCalman is one of four jazz artists who have been awarded a Jerwood Jazz Encounters Fellowship to create ground-breaking new ways to present jazz at Festivals across England. Site-specific and digital works by Elliot Galvin, Lara Jones and Witch ‘n’ Monk will also be presented at Manchester Jazz Festival, Oxford Contemporary Music and Sage Gateshead.
Jerwood Jazz Encounters is supported by Jerwood Arts
