'Voices' Season - Original Voices

Peninsula Arts looks to support new and undiscovered cultural voices, as well as bringing those internationally renowned voices to the region and this is explored in this season’s programme.

Born in Plymouth, Malcolm Le Grice pioneered new ways of presenting moving image as multi-screen projection and installation in the 1960s. He is recognised as being one of Britain’s most innovative and experimental film-makers.
