Indigo Night, 2013
SummerHall, Edinburgh, UK
The first stage show emerging from the 7x7 body of work. As Nile Rodgers, accompanied only by his 'billion dollar guitar', improvises on the theme of 'F', interweaving tales of Harlem with the story of his own remarkable life and songs from his legendary repertoire, Jean Pierre creates a Pop-Meets-Constructivism inspired artwork - from the glory days of the 'Harlem Renaissance' in the 1920's to the present time. The musical backdrop of the performance includes a seven part suite specially composed by Rodgers for Indigo Night. There are also amazing projections, including a short film conceived by Pierre Maillard for the 1st movement of Rodgers' Indigo Suite. These ground-breaking performances were premiered over two nights at , Summerhall, Edinburgh.
