Experience a new way of listening to Charles Mingus' wildly sensual, rhythmically explosive classic album by watching world-class dancers move to the music, unlocking powerful elements such as its beautiful melodies, complex structure and huge emotional range.


Join Clod Ensemble and members of Nu Civilisation Orchestra for a new perspective on Mingus’ big band masterpiece.

We will be listening to the album in its original recorded format performed by Charles Mingus and his band, with commentary from MOBO-nominated Peter Edwards, Music Director of Nu Civilisation Orchestra and Clod Ensemble Artistic Director Suzy Willson, which will be broadcast live from Shoreditch Town Hall.  Audiences are invited to join online.

Features guest performances from residents of Shoreditch and Hoxton, as well as Hackney carnival arts organisation Tropical Isles, with dancers wearing collections from Hackney-based designers Simone Rocha, Eudon Choi and previous collaborators ArtSchool.

The Black Saint & The Sinner Lady: Listening Party is part of a programme of events inspired by Charles Mingus’ 1963 masterpiece The Black Saint & The Sinner Lady, created in collaboration with Nu Civilisation Orchestra.
