Primo appuntamento nel Continente per il progetto Granite di Kate Westbrook: questa sera alla Georgenkirche di Halle (Germania), per la rassegna Women in Jazz.

"I wanted to keep an ambiguity about humankind's engagement with Nature. Personification and Animism quite appeal to me. So, we have a mythical Quarry-worker who is both human and part of the landscape itself. But I want to emphasise that the ambiguous nature of this creature is an essential element. There is an underlying (I hope not didactic) concern with the relationship between humankind and the earth, between our responsibility for the planet and the death of both the Quarry-worker and the earth itself, between the environment and mortality." (Kate Westbrook, intervistata da Duncan Heining).
