Video Jam returns

Article published: Sunday, November 11th 2012

The not-for-profit event curator Video Jam is set to assemble another eclectic mix of audio and visual artists for their next Antwerp Mansion showcase later this month.

After a short hiatus, Video Jam has set the date of Sunday 18 November for a fourth instalment.

The event, which has not been staged at its regular Antwerp Mansion home since July, will again create a speakeasy café environment for audience members to lounge in front of a makeshift screen fashioned from a large sheet while a variety of musicians and poets will provide a score. If that sounds ramshackle, then it is charmingly so.

The show will be left open to the interpretation of musicians Adam Hart, Boz Hayward and his Bozchestra, members of Songs For Walter, double bassist Dickon Kyme-Wright, Chris Barrett, opera soprano Lisa Newill-Smith, Fizzy Vickers as well as performances by writer James Leach and visual artist Sarah Hill. All of whom have been allocated a short film with which to work – most are produced by local filmmakers with one having recently premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

In the time since their last showcase at Antwerp Mansion, Video Jam has collaborated with Blank Media Collective at Sandbar as part of the Projector Series this summer and have more projects in the pipeline for next year.
