"It's a fine line... "Is a thought-provoking performance installation exploring the complexity of being human.

We are all different but on the other hand we are all much the same. Human beings have a very similar set of needs and also go through a fairly stereotype set of experiences. Interestingly we seem to work hard to bring our experiences or congenital differences into line with a standard pattern. The need to conform and to feel understood and accepted.

"Who in the world am I?
Ah, that's the great question!" Lewis Carroll

More often than not, all is not as it seems. Cheri Palmer-Coyle & Malcolm Coleman show one example of our inner person. Nothing is black & white, there are shades of grey.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
