A HUGE THANK YOU to all our supporters for helping to make our recent crowd funding campaign a resounding success.
Natasha is a libretto written by Jane Fox which explores aspects of modern slavery, the sex trade and human trafficking. In 2015 we held a successful research and development period for one section of the libretto; Shelter. This period included a performance for industry professionals and a Q&A discussion. Shelter was made possible by an award from the Arts Council of Wales.
Composer Ashley John Long was commissioned to write the part-graphic score for Shelter. We are developing Natasha – A triptych – studies in experimental opera for public performances in 2017.
Butcher is an examination of genetics, the medical profession, the pharmaceutical and cancer fundraising industries, pink-washing and the surgical removal of healthy breasts and other organs.
Butcher with original score composed by James Flight was performed in-the-round with tiered seating which was constructed as a circus top. The performers examined audience members with probes and sculptural appendages and film of DNA and surgical incisions were projected on the red drapes.
I admire your great courage in tackling such a contentious and frightening subject. Butcher has been one of the most memorable theatrical performances I have ever seen. Brenda Oakes
