Sensoria Festival Returns!
Sensoria, the UK festival of music, film and digital media, will take place in Sheffield between 30th September-8th October. Now celebrating its tenth year, the popular festival will bring another packed schedule of exciting events to a number of venues across the city. Expect a variety of film screenings, live music soundtracks and scores, talks, performances and exhibitions across the week.
An already announced highlight is the English premiere of Sundance Film Festival winner Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World. Sheffield favourite Richard Hawley will introduce the film, a critically acclaimed exploration into the often overlooked influence Native American music has had on contemporary song. Another one which may be of interest is a scheduled performance from original members the legendary Radiophonic Workshop, a selection of experimental composers, sound engineers and musical innovators. The rebirth of this pioneering group will take place at the University of Sheffield Drama Studio.
