TLRH |The Choir Project
Monday, 11 May 2020, 1 – 2pm
Rough Magic gives a work-in-progress presentation, as part of the development of a major new theatre piece; based on the extraordinary level of participation in choirs throughout this island and beyond, across the spectrum of age, gender, social class and ethnicity.
Music is central to the piece, but its primary focus is on the people who sing, and their diverse stories. Singing in a choir is the only point of contact many people have with an artistic practice. This piece of theatre will be an exploration of modern Ireland, using grass-roots participation in choral singing, and examining the reasons behind it. Read more about the Choir Project here
