The Voice Project
THE ARMS OF SLEEP
WORLD PREMIERE
Devised and created by Sian Croose & Jonathan Baker
Composers: Jonathan Baker, Helen Chadwick, Orlando Gough and Jon Hopkins Design by Laura Hopkins Film by Sal Pittman Lighting by Tim Tracey Through dusk and darkness to dawn. The liminal space, drift and dream.
Forty audience members join the choir to travel into the space of sleep where galaxies are born; a 23rd-Century Vespers.
Arriving in the beautiful surroundings of the Assembly House Norwich, guests will be given a bed each and spend the night surrounded by sound and shadows, balancing and drifting between sleep and wakefulness.
This ten-hour choral piece will feature specially-written music from Helen Chadwick, Orlando Gough, Jonathan Baker and Jon Hopkins.
The Voice Project was created in 2008 by singers, composers and animateurs Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker. Based in Norwich, they premiere all of their large-scale vocal performance projects here.
Audiences should bring a simple overnight bag; further information can be found on our website.
