The PURPUR Night of Transgressive Arts celebrates its FIFTH anniversary with an unusually diverse programme that revisits some of the highlights of the last four festivals and moves forward by presenting 6 newly-commissioned works by young South Africa composers played by the Purpur Ensemble. One of the highlights will be two sets by the brilliants Swedish horn player Sören Hermansson. Purpur revisits its well-received performances of Gavin Bryars’ classic Jesus Blood Never Fail’d Me Yet and include important 20th century works from the Fluxus and Dada movements.
