The Arms of Sleep

7 Feb 2018

Through dusk and darkness to dawn, drift and dream with The Voice Project Brighton Choir as you travel into the space of sleep where galaxies are born: a 23rd-Century Vespers.

In one of its most ambitious and magical productions to date, The Voice Project has created an epic 10-hour choral work to be performed overnight in the grounds of historic Firle Place, one of England’s most beautiful country houses. On arrival, guests will be given a bed each before spending the night surrounded by sound and shadows, poised between sleep and wakefulness as the Choir performs music specially commissioned from leading composers Helen Chadwick, Orlando Gough and Jonathan Baker.

Devised, created and directed by Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker
Composers: Jonathan Baker, Helen Chadwick and Orlando Gough
Designer: Laura Hopkins
Films by Sal Pittman
Lighting designer: Tim Tracey
Featuring Sianed Jones, Lisa Cassidy, Jeremy Avis, Rowland Sutherland, Adrian Lever, Jason Dixon and The Voice Project Brighton Choir
