New Directions for Frykberg

Let the Art Sing is a group of professional musicians who play a range of instruments from classical to indigenous to electronic, and come together under Susan’s direction to create structured improvisation around high quality art. The philosophy of Let the Art Sing is quite simply to  reveal the ‘songs’ of both the building in which the art is shown, and the artworks that are  there. Let The Art Sing’s first performance was at the Govett-Brewster, New Plymouth NZ in May 2010 and continues this year in various galleries in NZ. The following interview describes the first performance.

Frykberg at Dunedin, New Zealand

Fringe Festival DanceSpeak at Mary Hopewell Theatre April 2008.
The first work was a short film titled Anima directed by Ali East and danced by Lyne Pringle. This dance contained no words at all ........... Words were not required for this was a beautiful and haunting film where the movement of the body was completely at one with the movement of nature;......... Susan Frykberg's soundscape and John Irwin's camera edited ensured that the work flowed seamlessly. Reviewed by Barbara Snook, 4 Apr 2008 Read More...
