Join us for an intimate outdoor set from Chisara Agor in our new garden venue, The Deck.
Kicking off the summer season, The Old Church is re-opening its doors with a series of seated outdoor events.
This gig is ticketed with limited and socially-distanced capacity, please reserve your tickets to ensure your space.
Ever-shifting environments, constantly (r)evolving juxtapositions of experience, are recurring themes in much of Chisara Agor’s art. It’s a fitting focus for her expansive, multidisciplinary practice, which originates in part from her creative education at a local theatre.
From a young age, Agor learned to act, sing, play, dance and write simultaneously (not to mention her extensive visual output). The storytelling and theatrical elements present in their music are drawn from a philosophical enquiry and desire to create works that inspire conversation, reflection, and critique. From society, to politics, to how we find joy, Chisara's work is as much about the world around them as it is their own personal interpretation of it.
With an upcoming EP Shadows and Searchlights arriving this summer, Chisara continues to write with a melting pot of sounds and textures. West African percussion, jazz, hip hop, bossa nova, indie rock, easy listening and dub-inspired elements surface through her music along with spoken word, delicate harmonies and lyricism that invites audiences to sit and listen.
Please note that all visitors to The Old Church are required to adhere to current COVID related public health guidelines and social distancing rules are still in place.
We will be running a bar at the event operating with table service only. Our staff will be wearing masks to serve you, please wear one on your way to your table and when moving around the venue. You can remove your mask when seated at your table.
On your arrival at the venue we will politely ask you (and every member of your party) to check-in with the NHS Covid-19 app or provide us with your contact details.
We provide hand-sanitisers in our entrance area and throughout the space.
We look forward to welcoming you safely at The Old Church.
