World-renowned composer Gavin Bryars will be talking about some recent performances, especially in a tiny 12th century church in East Yorkshire, as well as the work he is doing on a forthcoming opera — to open next March in France — and current ballet compositions.

He will show the film of the church performance (18 minutes) as well as a draft filmed recording of one scene from the opera, which is based on Michael Ondaatje’s The Collected Works of Billy the Kid.

Presented by the West Shore Arts Council with the support of the District of Metchosin.
