Introducing: PROOF. Starting this Friday, 11th August.
A new series of events by York Creatives, celebrating York as a City of Media Arts
York Creatives presents: PROOF #01 - HERE:ONCE
HERE:ONCE is a 15 minute performance directed by writer and filmmaker Luke Downing, featuring projected visuals, live music and spoken word. The spoken word will be performed by Amy Thorpe and Quinn Richards, with music from Moongate.
HERE:ONCE will take place in the main hall of The Guildhall on Friday 11th August between 8pm and 10pm, with performances repeated across the evening.
Drawing inspiration from a trove of forgotten cine reels shot half a century ago, this collection of films and poems explore memory, and moments both lost and found in time.
Entry is free, and open to all ages.
“I'm delighted to have the opportunity to display my film poetry and writing in such a historic location as The Guildhall. The poems are all voiced by members of York's creative community, and this show gives me a chance to bring more of that community together as we include live performances and readings from actors and musicians based in York.
These PROOF events are the perfect way of showing the public the creative heart at the centre of our city.” - Luke Downing.
