STORY OF A NIGHT PIANIST (SONP) is a site specific interdisciplinary performance in the fascinating historical Orchard Place, Trinity Buoy Wharf, the home of London’s only lighthouse. Choreographed by emerging dance artist Anna Buonomo and executed by around 70 Dancers, accompanied by live piano, violin and cello composed by Maestro Lorenzo Turchi Floris.
Performances are on Friday 18th, Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th of May 2012, 8pm,
64 Orchard Place, Trinity Buoy Wharf, E14 0JW.

Turchi-Floris composed a brand new piece for arches and piano intended for a dance performance about a strange encounter he had whilst writing music during the nights.

“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. I was never scared by its appearance and I always felt like its presence was right. I wanted to ease its pain by writing and playing its story. Its past life has been like a river in the city, always surviving the human presence… always thinking that owning its own thoughts was enough, that all the rest was just nonsense. I think it was young, but old enough to have seen everything and suffered every pain that was possible to bear. I couldn’t understand what happened to its face, but for sure that wound didn’t come from an accident. The more I play, the more I understand its story. Sometimes I play for hours and I don’t even realize it until the first light of the morning comes through my half-closed curtains. I feel like I’m not living my nights anymore.”

STORY OF A NIGHT PIANIST wants to put under the spotlight one of the 'London's Lost Villages'. Its historical value is precious and this coral piece wants to encourage Londoners to visit this magnificent urban space, and therefore felt it was right to choose the location of Trinity Buoy Wharf to stage such a suggestive story with a scary soundtrack.

“In 1998, Trinity Buoy Wharf was an empty, derelict site. Now it is a thriving centre for the arts and creative industries with a rare community of over 350 like-minded people enjoying the unique riverside location. Free from overdevelopment, the site's fascinating history can still be seen in the buildings, installations and residents such as the Lightships LV93 and LV95 that are moored here.”
PLEASE NOTE:

This project is supported by Big Dance 2012 Micro Grant and Arts Council of England. Kindly supported by IPAD (Institute for Performing Arts Development) Dance Centre, University of East London. SONP is part of Big Dance 2012, the UK’s biggest celebration of dance. Taking place across the country, Big Dance includes thousands of events in a variety of locations and in every dance style, open to absolutely anyone.

WHY WE NEED A DONATION:

The money raised so far covers artistic fee for four professional dancers and three professional musicians. There are other FOUR professional dancers that agreed to be part of SONP just for the art sake (without being paid). Your donations will cover travel/food expenses and a small fee for those FOUR professionals that will work for a month for this project. We hope you believe in this project as much as THEY do.
