Dead Rat Orchestra will collaborate with Polish folk trio Sutari in a tour that explores the cultural impact of Polish and European migration in England. Performing in locations across England that have been nexus of Polish immigration, and engaging with British, Polish and European communities in these areas, the tour will utilise Sutari and DRO’s unique approaches to performing traditional musics to lead audiences in a performative and timely discussion as to the cultural impacts of the UK leaving the European Union.

 

 
Sutari

Exploring the traditions of Polish folk music, Sutari is a trio of singers, instrumentalists and performers, each from different musical and theatrical backgrounds. They use a mixture of traditional instruments (violin, basetla and drum), and also make use of everyday objects, exploring their potential as musical devices (for instance, a hand mixer, grater, bottles and a wrench).

They explore deep vocal harmony traditions, searching for the essence and hidden character of traditional songs, whilst exploring themes of femininity in folklore.

The Sutari project is a fusion of diverse music experiences and passions.

Dead Rat Orchestra

DRO are adventurers adrift in a sea of sound and possibility, plucking textures and melodies to craft their idiosyncratic vision of what music and performance can be.  Most often they have steered their ship through the idioms of Folk and Improv, to shout, sing and glisten at audiences from the UK to Mainland Europe, Scandinavia to Canada. Acutely hauntingoccasionally brutal and raucously joyous their music always attempts to enchant and entrance, be it emotionally or physically.

 

Formed by Daniel MerrillNathaniel Mann and Robin Alderton, necessity has sometimes dictated duo performances of any permutation, always imbued with a sense of the missing member.  Instruments are constantly swapped.

 

They have created music using the architectural surroundings in which they find themselves; coppice woods, abandoned abattoirs, paper mills, churches. Rarely performing in a conventional manner they often step away from the stage, to sing and holler a cappella amongst the audience.
