Sarah Wood: Here is Elsewhere

Kettle’s Yard has commissioned artist and filmmaker Sarah Wood to make a new film that contemplates the human impact of lockdown. Here is Elsewhere is an essay film that explores the idea that in lockdown people become ‘nomads of the imagination’, forced to travel in their mind at a time when physical movement is heavily restricted.

Watch the film online here.

Music at Home

We are very sad to have had to cancel the remaining concerts in our Chamber Music series and our New Music series. We hope that you can enjoy some music resources from home. We look forward to welcoming you back to Kettle’s Yard music soon.

Chamber Music

We’ve drawn together a Spotify playlist of ‘Music-in-Lieu’ for each of the cancelled Chamber Music concerts, comprising recordings by the same artists or of the same pieces from their programmes, plus a few extras that we think you’ll enjoy.

New Music

New Music Curator Tom McKinney has been in contact with the musicians whose concerts couldn’t take place, and we’re pleased to share with you some films and music from them.
