STORY OF A NIGHT PIANIST
"It's been over a month now. It comes in the night and whispers to me note by note the melody I am writing right now. It has a long wound on its face and its uneasiness suggests it left a painful unfinished business in its past life"
STORY OF A NIGHT PIANIST is an interdisciplinary performance choreographed by dance artist Anna Buonomo accompanied by live music, and telling the true story of a strange encounter composer Lorenzo Turchi-Floris had while playing at night. Originally commissioned for Big Dance 2012 and performed at Trinity Buoy Wharf in Docklands, STORY OF A NIGHT PIANIST draws on the historical narratives of people living and working at Trinity Buoy Wharf in East London during the 19th century – characters from the past with unfinished business in the present day.
