FUSE International Opening Night 2023
  • FUSE International

Celebrate the opening of the 15th festival with an exhilarating night of music and dance including two special guest performances from companies AXIOM and Tinderbox Orchestra.

AXIOM

AXIOM believes there is nothing like the power of unaccompanied human voices singing together. This year, they're debuting a brand new a cappella experience which challenges conventions and expands your expectations of what's possible in live singing.

They guarantee that everything weird and wonderful you hear is created by the human voice alone. They'll rejuvenate well-known classics with arrangements to keep you intrigued. Crunchy harmonic chords. Energy. Passion. Join AXIOM on a musical journey to discover what makes this award-winning group shine.

Tinderbox Orchestra

Bringing together rappers and singers with soaring strings, heavy brass, woodwind and thundering bass and drums, Tinderbox Orchestra combines original music and movement to transform preconceptions of what a 20- piece orchestra can be.

Packed with original music and unexpected collaborations, it is an unforgettable experience featuring some of Scotland's leading young musicians. From Hip Hop to Indie-pop, Trad Folk to Prog- Rock, the orchestra showcases a selection of their many collaborations and original compositions in a truly unique and exciting way.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
