Award-winning composer, writer and filmmaker Michael Nyman premieres his moving-image work CINE OPERA commissioned by ArtReach for Night of Festivals 2010.
"An elaborate 1940s cinema in the centre of Mexico City is in a state of almost tragically beautiful disrepair. No light beam will ever be thrown on a screen by the two projectors that are still in place in the projection room. Yet during the morning, endless beams of light play onto this contemporary ruin through the holes in the baroque roof...” Michael Nyman, 2010.
Free, The Space - during opening hours. Drop in.
CINE OPERA is presented as part of Night of Festivals 2010 created and produced by ArtReach with a range of partners, taking place Old Market Square, Nottingham, 16-18 September 2010.
