In Yoko Ono's Sky Piece To Jesus Christ (1965/2019), a group of musicians play a score, whilst another group of performers begin to wrap medical gauze around each member of the orchestra along with their instruments, as well as the conductor.

About

In Cambridge, Yoko Ono's Sky Piece To Jesus Christ  (1965/2019) will be performed by students and staff from Anglia Ruskin University, University of Cambridge and Kingston University London, conducted by Dr Paul Rhys, and directed by Gabriella Daris.

Followed by a discussion and Q&A with Dr Paul Rhys ( Senior Lecturer in Music, Anglia Ruskin University) and Gabriella Daris (art historian and curator), moderated by Dr Ross Cole (Research Fellow in Music, University of Cambridge).

​This performance is part of YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR... (2 March – 31 December 2019), Yoko Ono’s first-ever exhibition in Cambridge, conceived and curated by Gabriella Daris. Featuring over ninety early, recent and new works, most of which are participatory and will evolve as the exhibition unfolds, YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR… will offer the opportunity to immerse ourselves fully within Ono’s multifaceted world, demonstrating the wide-ranging scope of her artistic practice, spanning an array of media including text, painting, sculpture, installation, performance, event, music, film and video.

A diverse programme of events including interventions, installations, performances, screenings and symposia will take place at Lady Mitchell Hall, The Heong Gallery, Howard Theatre, Alison Richard Building, Ruskin Gallery, Mumford Theatre and Cambridge Junction as well as many public sites in the city. 

​Conceived and curated by Gabriella Daris.
