Declaration presents a visual and musical journey with compositions specially created and performed by Tagné Tebu, a multi-instrumentalist coming from a mix of jazz, African, Latin and Indo-Arabic influences. Declaration will feature live visual projections from video artist Kooj Chuhan plus contributing musicians. Expect sections of free jazz improvisation, click-drum-triggering of audio speech loops, rich textures, daring rhythms and evocative melodic structures. The music interweaves around a narrative developed by Kooj, and includes a mix of recorded and live spoken monologues by detainees, campaigns by human rights activists and legal case-workers.
Declaration is a mixed-media global-jazz music and VJ performance with documentary narratives reflecting on human rights post-Brexit
