Stillness

A concert of commissioned works exploring modern spirituality

Overview

There are few acoustics in the Manchester like Holy Name Church with its imposing exterior and Tardis-like interior, sustaining sounds long after they begin. No Dice brings you an evening celebrating the space inside a building heavy in symbolism and ritual with five specially commissioned pieces on the theme of modern spirituality.

A modern audience of mixed beliefs often finds itself in beautiful religious buildings for concerts, steeped in traditions they may not have experienced. We hope that our performance will be a source of contemplation for our listeners in forming their own interpretation of the space, and its relation to them over the course of the evening.
