Come and catch a rare sighting of The Dyr Sister as she wanders into town to sing her songs in magical surroundings. As the darkness of winter approaches, she invites you into her strange and surreal universe…
The Dyr Sister is headed up by Sally Currie, a multi-instrumentalist who was born partially deaf. She’s been commissioned to create Fairytales for the Modern Gentlemen through Sound and Music’s Composer-Curator initiative, working alongside the programme’s regional partners Back to Ours and Sunderland Culture and Hull Jazz Festivals Kickstart programme.
Sally is working collaboratively with several performers to present this unmissable experience, fusing a devastatingly beautiful explosion of sound with the work of artists Bluebeany & GrimVisions to bring The Dyr Sister’s modern day fairy tales to life using set design and digital projection mapping.
Sally (Artist & Project Manager) said: “’I’m delighted that The Dyr Sister has the opportunity to collaborate with Bluebeany, GrimVisions and more to bring a unique performance blending elements of music, art and 3-D immersive theatre.
“It’s an absolute pleasure to be part of the Sound and Music Composer-Curator programme for 2021, creating new and exciting work with the audience at the heart.”
