IN TWO MINDS is a sensory-friendly new music theatre piece, featuring two performers Ellie Stamp (voice) and Lucy Havelock (saxophone). The final piece will be presented at St Martin’s, Coney Street, York, at 2:15pm on Monday 25th April.
IN TWO MINDS is a project which endeavours to explore disability as integrated in art, the title of this piece referring to the notion of experiential duality; exploring ideas surrounding identity, connection, and the duality of human experience, particularly upon reception of diagnoses or with the onset of chronic illnesses and disabilities.
The performance will include improvisation, and movement of the performers, they will work around you if need be! Feel free to stand, sit, or move as and where you feel comfortable, please just be aware of others in your vicinity, and that saxophones and voices can be loud. Due to the nature of the performance and its inclusion of movement, please wear a face covering if you can.
Lucy is a 21-year-old saxophonist, composer, and improviser originally from Manchester. She is currently in her final year studying Music at the University of York.
As a performer and improviser, Lucy has frequently performed as part of The Chimera Ensemble, The Arc Project, and recently performed at St Paul’s Hall, Huddersfield, as part of Sarah Markham’s Saxophone Day. Lucy aims to encounter every-day life through compositional practice, from the mundane, to the complexity of memory and identity.
Lucy’s work often includes improvisation, and involved collaborative processes with performers. Over the last two years, she has worked with Psappha and members of The Chimera Ensemble. Alongside her interests in performance and composition, Lucy takes interest in curation and production, piqued by her work with Pilot Theatre as Production Assistant for Monoliths. She continues to develop this through her role as the current Chair of The Chimera Ensemble.
