Description

The Relentless Approach of Better Times is Emma Smith's testimony to the importance of galvanised positive action in response to forced mass migration, climate change and political corruption. An urgent and compelling solo double-bass performance with electronics, it features film and recordings from Smith's work for Musicians Without Borders in Palestine and El Salvador. Emma gives space to reflect on the effects of trauma and invites you to experience how music is fundamental to our survival. Be transported by music and images through a journey from anxiety to hope.
