THE HOWL IN ARCADIA

This is the story of a war correspondent who is trying to do her job. But when paradise has been overrun by the ruthless, what is there to say that makes a difference? Cult band The Cherubs, with lead vocalist Alex Alderton, create a dramatic journey that challenges the very notion of hope - to sing a hymn to humanity in the face of catastrophe. Ecstatic voices and virtuoso improvisation make something out of jazz and Baroque opera that’s dark, raw, and starkly beautiful. A Creative Wales Major Award supports this production.

Torch songs for the twenty first century!! The Cherubs take the nostalgia out of the torch song and turn it into something completely modern. I’m running a kind of minimalist, piano-driven jazz trio. Here are some songs of stark lyrical beauty. If you’ve not heard her already then Alex Alderton is a must. She delivers belting soul and heart stopping tenderness in the same breath. What happens is a revelation. Raw, dark hued, emotional listening.

VOICES IN ARCADIA

July 16 – 19 2007


THE SUMMER SHIFT CPR International Summer School of Theatre and Performance http://www.thecpr.org.uk/projects/summershift.phpABERYSTWYTH, WALES, UK
This workshop explores devising with sound, song, and music to create a kind of mind's-eye-theatre for the ears that is resonant with the modern world and will also explore how engagement with a particular site location can be retrieved as approaches to soundscape composition. Taking the idea of Arcadia and the nostalgia of Paradise as our point of entry, we will be exploring ideas around the construction of Nature and the emergence of mythologies. What if we take these as raw materials? What stories and narratives can we generate? Taking time to explore the specific location of Hafod near Cwmystwyth, we will be exploring strategies for composing image, music and text that are extracted from site research. We will be exploring strategies for staging sonic performance using our 'natural' voices and found sound sources.
Joining Simon Thorne in leading this exploration will be French-German director Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski, whose Belgian company, Lucilia Caeser (www.luciliacaesar.be/), works with the theatricality of choir, polyglot language, and painting to give access to musical forms that in turn give life to archetypes, living pictures and transformational metamorphosis. The text develops beyond words, situations and characters to harmonies, images and choreographic structures instead. The outcome is a unique theatre for the ears - music for the eyes.
