August Sunset
“Oh, the summer night,
Has a smile of light,
And she sits on a sapphire throne.”
–   Barry Cornwall

Join us for a night of food, music and light in the Bluecoat’s gardens. Under the theme August Sunset a range of artists from Liverpool to Australia will present site-specific works commissioned especially for this event.

Noise Club [food performance]
Straddling the divide between performance and intervention, Noise Club have played people, plants and buildings. For If Only..! they have created a special food-based performance. Culinary art for a summer barbeque.

Luxury Gap [audio-visual installation]
Incorporating the evening light and sound in real time to create looped arcs of pulsing, decaying sound and melody.
