Legendary Japanese collective Marginal Consort will perform a rare three-hour concert for one night only in a Melbourne exclusive. Founded by members of East Bionic Symphonia – Kazuo Imai, Kei Shii, Masami Tada, and Tomonao Koshikawa will create deeply spatial works that sit at the nexus of performance, site-specific installation and durational concert.
Since 1996, Marginal Consort reconnects only once a year to perform – without discussion the collective gather as independent solos – using start and end times as the only fixed elements in their long-form happenings. What happens in-between is for the moment; ephemeral and utterly unique to the location and time of that performance.
Presented by The SUBSTATION, Room40 and Melbourne International Jazz Festival.
