Born from disenchantment with your typical 3-band gig formula, SHINDIG is a interdisciplinary night of entertainment embracing all forms of performance. With music as it’s starting point, the events provide a unique atmosphere in beautiful venues across Cambridge, and embrace all mediums if they work well with the aesthetic of the night. From poetry to dance to video to art, the gigs aim to be inclusive and accessible rather than exclusive and pretentious. For musicians, it is a chance to do something unusual with their craft, and open their work up to collaboration; for other creatives, it is a chance to have their work seen in an unusual context. For the audience, it aims to provide unique and participatory experiences you won’t get anywhere else. By turns surreal, melancholy or warm, each event is curated with a fastidious eye for detail, intended as a gift to all the senses.
