… And is This a Dream?’ is a new, staged piece for a choir of over one hundred voices and soloists in the highly atmospheric All Saints’ Church, Hove and St. Mary’s Works, Norwich.

The Voice Project is an award-winning choir which, for the past 15 years, has created large-scale site-responsive staged choral performances in wonderful architectural spaces and landscapes. It is an un-auditioned choir working with professional solo singers, instrumentalists, composers and poets. All the music is specially written for the choir by composers including Helen Chadwick, Jonathan Baker and Brighton’s own Orlando Gough.

There will be twelve songs, each one of which depicts a dreamscape. The audience will be invited on a journey through the interior of a building that has been inhabited by others for over a century, evoking the half-lit, liminal world of dreaming.

The piece is a further development from The Arms of Sleep, the groundbreaking overnight choral piece developed by The Voice Project for the Brighton Festival and the Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

The title ‘…And is This a Dream?’ is inspired by The Birds of East London by the poet Stephen Watts, a long-term Voice Project collaborator.

Music by Helen Chadwick, Orlando Gough and Jonathan Baker.

Words by George Szirtes, Mary Oliver and Wallace Stevens.

A note on accessibility – The concerts at St. Mary’s Works in Norwich will be staged over two floors of the building and audience will be required to access the first floor via the stairs. Seating will be provided on the ground floor but for the sections of the show on the first floor, audience members will be required to stand. The building itself can be quite cold so we advise you to wrap up warm!
