Throughout the Aldeburgh Festival, the Dovecote will show a programme of films and moving images by artists including Julian Simmons and Paul Benney.
Two works are presented courtesy of the Artangel Collection. 1395 Days Without Red by Šejla Kamerić, created in collaboration with composer Ari Benjamin Meyers, recalls everyday life in Sarajevo during four years of siege in the 1990s. Singing for the Sea by Bethan Huws documents a group of eight Bulgarian women, the Bistritsa Babi, who were invited to the North East Coast of England by the artist, to sing to the North Sea. Their distinctive full-throated technique powerful and highly expressive.
