ABOUT US

The Metapraxis Ensemble is a London-based, flexible group of musicians and collaborators, established in early 2009. Our events (scroll down for our  portfolio) focus on presenting contemporary music, often in conjunction with compositions from older eras, structured around a certain narrative, and reinforced by extra-musical elements. Allowing some sort of theatrical elements to emerge, our projects are presented as single units, often featuring video projections, movement, text, and staging / lighting effects.

We always aim to create a unique performing environment in accordance to the tone and texture of each of those events, and the same goes for projects we  engage with through associated artists and organisations. As a result, we are deeply commited in creating collaborations, and experimenting with the adoption of a wide variety of art forms: some of those previously explored include (shadow) theatre, dance, video, puppetry, and design/construction.

Metapraxis events have been produced in venues all over London, such as at LSO St Lukes, IKLECTIK, Cafe OTO, TripSpace, The Space, Iris, The Cockpit, Chelsea & Blue Elephant theatres, as well as at schools and universities. Support has been generously provided by the Arts Council England, Hinrichsen Foundation, and Marchus Trust.
