Neil Luck: The Composers’ Fund
Memory of Muscles
In collaboration with choreographer Athina Vahla, Neil Luck and the performance group ARCO will develop a repertoire of practical exercises and training resources for performers interested in experimental music-theatre.
Focused on the idiosyncratic, the surreal, and the inexplicable nature of their collective practices, they will run a series of public workshops in 2022, before creating and publishing a set of resources available internationally.
Neil Luck is a composer, performer and director based in London. His work often explores the pathos and interaction between live human performance and multimedia, and attempts to frame the act of music making as something curious, or weird, or useful, or spectacular in and of itself. His work takes a range of forms from music-theatre, to concert works, radio, public projects and recordings.
Neil is the founder and director of the music-theatre ensemble ARCO, and a co-founder of artist cooperative squib-box. Independently, he has also worked with and written for a people and ensembles ensembles in the UK and abroad, and presented work at music venues, festivals, and galleries internationally including the ICA, Whitechapel Gallery, MATA Festival (NYC), Tate Britain, Tate Modern, BBC Proms, Palais de Tokyo (Paris), in Vilnius and Aarhus Capital of Culture festivals, and the Tokyo Experimental Festival.
