Sick Jazz + Live Performance
Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Connection, dir. Shirley Clarke

“And thus begins a play within a play within a jazz concert”. 

From the performance halls of Havana to the lofts of New York and the back streets of Milan, Sick Jazz is a dynamic and experimental screening and performance event. 

Sick Jazz explores the ways that Jazz and Film intertwine; the visualisation of music and the flow of emotions. Sick Jazz presents a trio of works by acclaimed filmmaker Shirley Clarke, famous trumpeter Chet Baker and revered singer Don Aspazu. Featuring a live saxophone performance. 

Call your GP, it's gonna get sick.
