The Talleyrand proudly presents a film carefully selected by Aziz Ibrahim followed by a live performance for The Colour Of Sound
the event is that combining film with a unique live musical performance will allow the audience to stay in a certain vibe all night, using music to remain in a headspace created by the film after it’s ended. Plus it’s always cool to get an inside look of what musicians are into + putting together 2 things that you’d never normally see in one evening
Talleyrand has been funded by Arts Council England to deliver a series of four performances as well as improve our live music infrastructure. Here’s a little more info on the project as well as Talleyrand
The Talleyrand is an events venue and bar in South Manchester. We’ve been open for almost a year, during which time we’ve held many successful events from theatre shows and art exhibitions to screenings and gigs. We’re always transforming our ‘velvet room’ (our 90-capacity multifunctional events space) and taking programming risks, aiming to attract audiences to Levenshulme and away from the city centre. Past events have been ambitious, like our immersive theatre show ‘The Cocktail Hour’ by Neil Bell (Peterloo, Dead Man’s Shoes,) for which we transformed our events space into a restaurant and served the audience dinner whilst the performance unfolded around them. The show received great reviews and sold out its entire run.
Many of the live music events we’ve held hold have employed a strong visual element, in a bid to further immerse the audience within the performance. Manchester bands like Handle, PING and The Whistleblowers have done so in a variety of novel ways, as well as international artists such as Kaputt, Dame Area (Give Me Space), and Dimitri.
One of our regular events, ‘Tally-Ho’, has become a successful scratch performance night allowing city-wide poets, musicians and writers to perform new work whilst giving them an opportunity to network with other performers. We have also partnered with local festivals such as the Levy Fringe Festival and Levenshulme Pride to deliver their programmes. ‘We ‘Were Strangers’, for example, saw the authors of the eponymous, highly acclaimed short story anthology come together to read and discuss their stories and how they were inspired by Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures. Our has been marked by omnivorousness, and a flair for combining different arts ‘worlds’.
