Musarc performed Rainbows at Join the Art Party on the occasion of the opening of The New RA on Saturday 19 May, 2–5pm.
Rainbows is a work by artist Sarah Kate Wilson which was first performed with Musarc in 2017 on the occasion of Do D!sturb, Palais de Tokyo, in conjunction with Beata viscera iridis, an arrangement of Pérotin’s Beata viscera by Piper Haywood and Toby O’Connor. With their voices and coloured mirrors, a group of singers endeavour to create a rainbow that appears and dissipates in a sonic landscape. The audience is caught inside this spectacle, captured in selfies, facing their own reflections and receiving an ethereal sense of their own bodies as they alight on these reflective surfaces.
