Platforma 5: Music After Detention – Dover Residency

Music in Detention

Music in Detention (MiD), in collaboration with musician Oliver Seagar are running a 3 day residency in Dover (3-5 October), with musicians they worked with whilst incarcerated in the UK’s Immigration Detention System.

Until 2015 there was an Immigration Removal Centre in Dover, sited in Dover’s Western Heights Nature Reserve. Some of MiD’s musicians were held there. Music in Detention co-creates soundtracks with people who are detained in Immigration Removal Centres. This time MiD are working with musicians after detention. The residency includes a concert and presentation which will be free and open to the public.

5 October Music After Detention: Gig @ The Lighthouse in Deal 20:30 – 23:00

This extra-special gig includes a series of tracks made and performed by Music In Detention musicians during the residency held in Dover with Ollie Seagar, supported by John Buckett and Anna De Mutiis. It will be accompanied by a set from Kotchin (AKA Ollie Seagar) and a short presentation from Music in Detention.

Lighthouse is based at 50 The Strand, Walmer, Deal Kent CT14 7DX.
