New work by Judith Ring receives Berlin performance

Ergodos Autumn 2011 edition of Leap, ‘Intervention’, will feature two performances across the evening of Friday 4 November: Dublin-based percussionist-composer Dennis Cassidy, and Berlin/NYC vocal duo Tryst.


Vocal duo Tryst’s performance practice represents an intelligent and highly variegated approach to this paradigm. Drawing inspiration from jazz, contemporary, classical, cabaret and folk performance cultures, Michelle O’Rourke and Nora Ryan explore and interpret vocal repertoire. O’Rourke and Ryan perform with regular collaborators: composer-drummer Dennis Cassidy and bassist Sean Maynard Smith. For this performance at Leap!, Berlin, they will be joined by Berlin-based Irish composer-guitarist Brian Flynn (Ultrasutra) and Danish choreographer-dancer Silja Thomsen. Their performance will feature the Berlin premiere of new work Mad Sweet Pangs through my Belly & Breast by Irish composer Judith Ring. Michelle O’Rourke commissioned this work for Tryst with funds from the Irish Arts Council: the work was premiered in New York this September.
