The Kites of Tianjin is a 60min work by Adam Simmons, inspired by the Chinese city’s renowned “Wei Kites”, created by Wei Yuantai (1872-1961). It will be the fifth and final project as part of a two-year series of large ensemble works presented under the banner of “The Usefulness of Art” (TUoA)

The work will feature Wang Zheng-Ting on sheng (Chinese mouth organ) as featured soloist with the Adam Simmons Creative Music Ensemble, and set design by award winning quilter, Rachaeldaisy. The work will explore the ideas of breath, flight, colour and movement.
