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 short film features The Revenge of Miguel Cotto, by Steven J Fowler & Philip Venables, including performance footage and interviews with the collaborators.
The Revenge of Miguel Cotto is a work exploring the violence, sanctioned by society, that is boxing, through music and poetry.
Video produced by De Novo Arts.
Blue Touch Paper is delivered in partnership with the Jerwood Charitable Foundation with support from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
