Andy Holden, Roger Illingworth & Tiffin School: The Music of MI!MS

Performing the Music of MI!MS
Andy Holden and Roger Illingworth with Tiffin Chamber Orchestra and Children’s Chorus
Live Event at Rose Theatre Kingston 5pm Monday 15 July 2013
All welcome / Free tickets available from Rose Theatre Box Office

Stanley Picker Fellow Andy Holden has teamed up with Roger Illingworth, childhood friend and fellow band-member from The Grubby Mitts, to revisit and rework a series of songs that they initially composed as teenagers, and which will now be performed by pupils from Tiffin School Chamber Orchestra and Tiffin Children’s Chorus, the latter comprised of children from primary schools across South West London, and accompanied by readings from actor, Sam Marsh.

Commissioned by the Stanley Picker Gallery, the project will culminate with a free public performance at the Rose Theatre on 15 July 5-6pm as part of the International Youth Arts Festival 2013, and later in the year a limited edition CD will be released through the Stanley Picker Gallery and Holden’s Lost Toys record label.

Recordings of the performance will later form part of a large-scale exhibition at the Zabludowicz Collection London, investigating the future potential of a manifesto Holden, Illingworth and three friends wrote and distributed as teenagers. The manifesto, which refers to their self-initiated art movement known as MI!MS (Maximum Irony! Maximum Sincerity) states MI!MS is about the willingness to be lied to and the will to believe! It’s about the intense sadness of our unrealistic dreams, and the intense joy of our desire for them. We should not be cynical about the emotions in our work – we are simply cynical about the means we have to express those emotions…
