The Kalahari’s San people tell of a bee that carried a mantis across a river. The exhausted bee leaves the mantis on a floating flower, planting a seed in its body. According to their folklore, it is from this seed that the first human is born.

Mira Calix presents an evening of her music composed and re-arranged for string quartet, electronics and field recordings. Drawing on her 2003 work nunu, originally composed for the London Sinfonietta and a gathering of live insects, the programme places this work in the context of her wider interdisciplinary practice, which incorporates sonic organic materials with classical instrumentation, dance, and visual elements.
