Introducing Interplay Now

Interplay Now enables new musical collaborations across different cultures.

We are a new project bringing together very different musical genres, cultures and communities to create new music, and to encourage deeper understanding of the background to that music both artistically and socially using educative journalism.  The UK is rich in having a very diverse range of cultures and the innovative possibilities through bringing us together are mostly underused.  Our project’s starting point is with a diverse group of people mostly who arrived as refugees, who will perform, talk about and webcast a range of music created during the weekly project sessions. This is the Interplay Now Collective.

Interplay Now aims to bridge divides, generate artistic innovation and develop organisational skills among local people. We are also developing three micro-commissions connecting unusual pairs of Sheffield based musicians. Interplay Now hopes to catalyse the future evolution and understanding of musical crossover. We will use educative webcasting to develop audiences and influence musical and creative practice. 

We need your support to get this new project up and running – please SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/channel/UC3ujhN7adteCnU7Fa9g4WvQ

We are only just beginning, we have just had our first live presentation on 20th June 2019 at Theatre Deli preceding a performance by Avital Raz at Sheffield’s Migration Matters festival during Refugee Week, more details at www.migrationmattersfestival.co.uk/full-programme-2019-b/my-jerusalem . After only two sessions we have created a very simple promo video to give a sense of the vibe that this project is starting out with:
