This MEss We’re In

In Spring 2021, ODAS was awarded a commission from Leeds City College’s Art Fund. The project, This Mess We’re In, will see ODAS create a feature length show of new music. However, the process also involves collaboration with College students. They will be the voice of the piece, through spoken word, film and dance presentations, using the title and music as an inspiration.

The mess in question could be the pandemic, Brexit, the economy, Climate Change, or it could be something much more personal. The title hints that there is a ‘togetherness’ within this mess, and this should be exemplified by the coming together of musicians and students who have not met before, and many of whom will not have performed before.

The project will be developed over the Summer and will culminate in a full live performance.
