Heard: a new audio-drama

—   C O N C E R T S   —

Sunday 4th July 2021, 8:00 pm

Heath Street Baptist Church

in collaboration with composer Anna Semple

‘Heard’ is a new audio-drama by Anna Semple and Gareth Mattey, sung by the Corvus Consort. Somewhere between an opera and a radio-play, ‘Heard’ explores the meaning of community and the insidiousness that festers therein.

all singers are people in the community at any and every time
they are a collective, they are a society, they are a community
but individual voices and people can still be heard among them
they might include:
– the gossips
– the refugee
– the mayor
– the neighbour
– the migrant
– the councillor
– the prick
– the familiar
– the lumberer
– the one who needs help
– the dog
it is up to you to decide who is who, and whether you want to or not
but above all, each and every one of them is a member of the community
whether they like it or not
they’re stuck with each other

Entry is free, with refreshments included after the performance.
