Rolf Hind On what weft are woven the waters World Premiere (Commissioned by hcmf// with funds from the Nicholas Berwin Charitable Trust)

The vast, poetic, drug-induced Vedas – the writings of early Hindu civilisation – were, and are, kept alive by human memories and repetition, where no earthly traces survive of the culture they sprang from. On what weft are woven the waters is a piece about memory, ritual, sacrifice, and the constant remaking of the oldest things through the magical symbolism of sound. A monumental new work from composer/performer Rolf Hind, commissioned by hcmf// for the vast spaces of Bates Mill Blending Shed.

Produced by hcmf//; co-produced by the Mahogany Opera Group supported by hcmf// Benefactors Roz Brown and Colin Rose
