LAURÈNE DURANTEL Double bass, piano, voice

Following a sell-out performance last year, Laurène Durantel revisits her wonderful improvised accompaniment to the acclaimed film Man With a Movie Camera.

Dziga Vertov’s 1929 film, part documentary and part cinematic art, follows city life in the Soviet Union through the course of a single day. It’s a celebration of modern life - a brave new world? – with thriving industries, crowded streets, and intimate, disarming moments of great humour.
