Triptych at Java

Triptych, performed poetry in soundscape, will be performed by WASH downstairs at Java Café & Gallery on Apr. 24 from 7.30pm.

This three-part work reflects three recurring themes that have arisen over the past two years through three works of poetry ­– Phnom Penh/earth; the art of travel/fire through air; the art of living/water.

Inspired by the music involverd in the project, artists Chhan Dina ( and Adriana Snochowska have painted backdrops for the performance, reflecting the three sections. Video projections have been prepared by Warren Daly.

WASH is a collaboration of Warren Daly, Alex Leonard, Scott Bywater and Hal FX.

“My poems are generally spontaneous, improvised, unpolished,” says Bywater. “They live, and are written, in moments. They are not often read aloud. Particular themes have become apparent over time, sometimes to the extent of being repetitive. Triptych seeks to draw out these themes and images through sonic, harmonic, rhythmic and visual expression, a collaboration at once structured and improvised.”

Entrance is free.
