About the performance
Kaffe Matthew’s sound work Empty pot fills, overflows, breathe in the Minka House, was commissioned as part of Kew’s Summer festival – Travel the World at Kew.
Responding to the sounds and atmosphere inside the Minka House, the work will be a unique and site specific experience for visitors to the garden. During the performance, Kaffe Matthew’s will improvise together with Ryoko Akama on voice, flute and electronics, and Mariko who will create a dance performance.
Akama and Satomi are both from Sendai, an area at the heart of the March earthquake disaster, Japan.
