Phoenix City 2021 (Reprise) is an adaptation of Phoenix City 2021, reconfigured from the 24-minute gallery work. The piece features a complete rework of the original soundtrack by Abul Mogard, featuring adaptations from Mozart’s Requiem.


In 2017 Coventry was announced to follow Hull as the next UK City of Culture. The announcement prompted the green light on a number of city centre developments in Coventry, including a new train station, swimming pool and a revamped shopping precinct, with plans for a Very Light Rail system advancing in the background.

Phoenix City 2021 (Reprise) examines the UK City of Culture award’s ‘city arisen from the ashes’ narrative in a journey through decaying modernist architecture, burning architectural models, gleaming student accommodation high-rises.
