Diving- a world première of cinematic movements for violin by Gavin Evans, performed by virtuoso violinist Richard Moore.
Impulse, pain and loss are exposed with the precision of the surgeon’s scalpel on the 6th and 7th August in Summerhall’s Dissection Room. Diving is an explosively beautiful work composed of 9 cinematic movements for violin by uncompromising photographer and film-maker Gavin Evans. A searing shaft of light illuminates the darkest recesses of the human condition as emotion pours onto the frame in slow motion. In a display of unnerving intimacy. Diving explores, reveals and shares suppressed experiences. Every performance is a unique, emotional journey as virtuoso violinist Richard Moore improvises and gives voice to Evans’s extraordinary subjects. Diving demands the audience to take a deep breath and look deep within.
