Join us for an evening of music with The Venus Bushfires, interluded with a conversation with NTU PhD candidate Bethan Evans.
The Venus Bushfires is a creative collective of one and many, of which Helen Epega is the only constant member. The Nigerian-British singer-songwriter, composer and performance artist harnesses influences from avant-garde, psychedelic, tribal and meditative arts and draws inspiration from musical and creative pioneers such as Fela Kuti and Kate Bush, creating music and stories that explore the sensual and the spiritual.
She describes her music as Afro-Sonic. Her work has been celebrated globally and featured on BBC, CNN, TVC News, The Guardian UK, Channel 4 UK, Reuters, France 24, Le Monde, The Guardian Nigeria and many others.
This event will take place at Bonington Gallery.
This event is part of Formation: Audio/Visual. The Formations programme is an online series of free, public events led by the Postcolonial Studies Centre at Nottingham Trent University in collaboration with Bonington Gallery. Find out more about upcoming Formations events.
Bonington Gallery is part of Curated & Created — NTU's extra-curricular arts programme.
