First held in St Mary In The Castle in Hastings, then enjoying a quarterly slot at The Cockpit, London, EMERGENCE is back to the South Coast for a weekend at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill.
EMERGENCE grew out of The Cockpit’s contemporary jazz programming. For seven years Jazz In The Round has been proud to be part of London jazz, presenting, recording, and broadcasting the stream of evolving talent supported superbly by initiatives like The Total Refreshment Centre, Jazz Refreshed and Steam Down and running stages at Love Supreme, Kings Place, and The Roundhouse.
Like Jazz In The Round, EMERGENCE offers a time and space for players, artists, and audiences to come together for a dance-friendly weekend of events where people can meet, experiment, and make the right mistakes.
