London Sinfonietta's Blue Touch Paper programme nurtures and promotes the next generation of composers and inter-disciplinary collaborators. The Blue Touch Paper preview event on 16 May 2012 at Village Underground showcased the culmination of a year-long collaboration between 3 groups of composers and multi-disciplinary artists.
This film features a work in progress preview of The Revenge of Miguel Cotto by Steven J Fowler & Philip Venables exploring the violence, sanctioned by society, that is boxing, through music and poetry.
