Serious presents Between The Lines

Serious presents the third edition of Between The Lines, its festival of uncategorisable, boundary pushing music. Taking place both live and online, this year’s series showcases three breathtaking performances from some of the most groundbreaking artists currently working in the UK

Starting with a rare solo performance from Curl Collective member and Tirzah collaborator Coby Sey recorded in front of a live audience at Kings Place, the series continues with a new collaborative performance by contemporary vocalist and movement artist Elaine Mitchener with dance artist Tommaso Petrolo performed live at Cafe OTO, and concludes with a performance film of electronic musician Gazelle Twin and experimental choir NYX’s collaborative work Deep England, directed by award-winning filmmakers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard. Each performance will also be followed by a Q&A hosted by NTS / BBC Radio 4 DJ and broadcaster Zakia Sewell.

The live shows were completely sold out so they were captured to bring them to the digital stage

This year’s Between The Lines represents the very cutting edge of modern British music, taking us on a tour de force of experimentation and collaboration across the musical spectrum.

You can watch last year’s Between the Lines series, including performances from Loraine James, Leafcutter John, and an Erased Tapes special, here
