Muso is an experimental new project that invites audiences into our museums and galleries after dark. Here they hunt for buried artefacts, share what they've found, hear from an expert and then enjoy musical performances made up on the spot about their discoveries.
It is a first of its kind of performance; an explosive collaboration between opera, academia, art and science.
Our first trial of Muso was in collaboration with the Grant Museum of Zoology, UCL and Professor Chiara Ambrosio, Lecturer in History and Philosophy of Science.
We spent a week of research and development, kindly funded by Arts Council England, exploring ways to re-frame the bank of knowledge held in the Grant museum, in order to engage visitors to take that moment to look more closely at exhibits.
It was a very rewarding week that culminated in a fantastic evening that inspired a genuine collaboration between audience, opera and science.
Muso is available to tour in 2016.
