The Gogmagogs, a brash, young contemporary music ensemble from London, made a splash in their New York debut at Miller Theater two seasons ago, showcasing their compellingly bizarre and physical brand of music theater (involving standing, posing, walking, dancing and even running around the stage while playing their instruments). They are heard here in a rare live recording from the City of London Festival. We also visit several several other of England's thriving new-music groups, including Icebreaker and Ensemble Bash.
