London Sinfonietta's Blue Touch Paper programme nurtures and promotes the next generation of composers and inter-disciplinary collaborators. The Blue Touch Paper preview event on 16 May 2012 at Village Underground showcased the culmination of a year-long collaboration between 3 groups of composers and multi-disciplinary artists.
This film features a work in progress preview of Half of Me, a re-imagining of the Greek myth of Persephone, experimenting how effects from early animated film could transfer to the art of puppetry, integrated with live musical performance by Elspeth Brooke, Seonaid Goody & Anna Jones.
