the then + the now = now time at Wigmore Hall

Elaine is proud to present the UK premiere of the then + the now = now time on 2nd September 2021 at Wigmore Hall with her collaborator Dam Van Huynh.

the then + the now = now time is an artistic quest to politicize the past, undoing and unsettling time and space using music and movement. Born in East London to Jamaican parents, Mitchener’s artistic work as a vocalist, movement artist and composer is permeated by the awareness of past and present forms of discrimination, post-colonial wounds and their effects on humanity. “We will inhabit a concept of remembering as an act of responsibility. An act that in turn is ultimately liberating and healing.” Elaine Mitchener

“Her performance at Silent Green – an old crematorium converted into a cultural center – hit hard.” National Sawdust

Commissioned by Maerzmusik – Festival für Zeitfragen (2019)
