Since 1995, the Gogmagogs have made it their business to combine dynamic movement with virtuosic string playing in a theatre setting. This multimedia performance troupe are the stars of this 1997 New Sounds program From the Vaults. For this program, John Schaefer was on location at the Bridewell Theatre as part of the City of London Festival for a short afternoon visiting with the “Gogs” and capturing some live performances.
