Tessa Gordziejko & Kwah

Kelham Island Museum - Friday Opening Concert

Another Breath brings you a live mix of elegiac pieces which explore threat, loss and letting go; blending spoken poetry and electronic music, driven and informed by environmental tragedy and future climate chaos, these are stories of fragile balance and the legacy that one generation is leaving to the next.

Another Breath invites audiences to think, feel and mourn the earth we are on the cusp of losing – and to dance into their grief, love and rage.

Another Breath is performed by Tessa Gordziejko and Rory Gordziejko (Kwah)
