About Xhosa Cole: Shared Spaces

Birmingham saxophonist Xhosa Cole brought audiences on a journey through his debut durational performance art piece.

Over the course of five days, Cole improvised on the saxophone while transitioning from sensory deprivation to sensory overload.

Shared spaces can be found at the heart of all community and relationships; they are transient portals for connection.

Over five days, Cole will be traveling through some of these gateways feeling, hearing, seeing and sensing (y)our presence.

With his saxophone, the artist transmuted his feelings and expressed his experience intuitively in a shared space.
