An array of diverse new works from Academy composition students placed in and reflecting the unique underground spaces of The Ditch.

This event is part of the Royal Academy of Music's The Art of Chaos, presented in association with Shoreditch Town Hall. Taking Kurt Weill's The Threepenny Opera as a catalyst, the Royal Academy of Music presents a subterranean festival of new music, The Art of Chaos. A series of site specific events unfold over three days including new works for voices and ensemble, a cabaret show of political song, an evening of brand new music from composition students and a series of sound installations inviting the listener to explore the labyrinth of rooms that make up The Ditch. And running over the three days, the result of a collaboration between UWE film-makers and Academy composers, six new experimental animation films influenced by the Weimar Republic that re-examine and illuminate intimate spaces around The Ditch.
