After curating multiple concerts in Roodkapje, Futura Resistenza is hosting a very special label night. Expect an evening full of groundbreaking performances and concerts. Futura Resistenza is a label and platform from Brussels and Rotterdam, that operates somewhere on the border between performance, music and visual arts. Roodkapje invited the label to program a series of concerts in our venue. Throughout this year they’ve invited musicians and artists who already have a connection with the label, as well as people who they simply admire and wanted to see perform.

For this festival appearance Mark Vernon presents a live soundtrack performance of ‘Tape Letters from the Waiting Room’. An existential drama exploring the universal themes of death and rebirth. ‘Tape Letters from the Waiting Room’ is an experiment in film archaeology and magnetic memory as it navigates past life experiences. Shifting in succession from the mundane to the metaphysical, the film is composed of extant 16mm found footage from the past century. Mark Vernon performs an immersive live soundtrack to an extended cut of the film by Steve McInerney.
