The Bang on a Can All-Stars previous performances at the Barbican, BBC Proms and the Royal Festival Hall have been sell-out successes. Now we’re bringing them to London to perform in the city’s most exciting and intimate concert venue - an 18th Century Grade I listed Hawskmoor church.

Iva Bittova combines an extraordinary vocal range and virtuoso violin playing with a theatrical flair reminiscent of performance icons Laurie Anderson, Meredith Monk and Björk.

Radical...demands to be heard. The Guardian

A fiercely aggressive group, combining the power and punch of a rock band with the precision and clarity of a chamber ensemble. The New York Times

Iva Bittova, violin and vocals; Robert Black, bass; David Cossin, percussion; Lisa Moore, piano/keyboards; Mark Stewart, electric guitar; Wendy Sutter, cello; Evan Ziporyn, clarinets.
