THE SONG PROJECT
Some things can only be sung
After sold-out work-in-progress performances in Spring 2019, don’t miss this intimate gig in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs for just nine performances.
A person is a collection of stories, not definable in black and white definitions but in a spectrum of greys.
Royal Court associate designer Chloe Lamford has teamed up with Dutch award-winning singer and composer Wende Snijders to dive into the greys of what it means to be a woman today. Together with composer Isobel Waller-Bridge, choreographer Imogen Knight and five Royal Court writers they share their hopes, anxieties, and experiences of messiness in the face of birth, death, friendship, motherhood, mothers, divorce, loss and ageing.
Since the beginning of time we’ve needed rituals to deal with all great life events, an emotional release when rationality feels irrelevant. The Song Project starts from the idea that some things can only be sung.
