Dr Blighty seeks young voices for a recording

poster1Dr Blighty is a big show in May in Brighton Festival, it will  take place in Pavilion Gardens and tells the story of the days when the Pavilion and Dome served as a hospital for wounded Indian soldiers during  WW1.
Part of the show will involve a number of voices reading the letters which the soldiers sent home to their families.  You will be able to hear these on sound equipment hidden in the trees etc – the whispers of the past……………
We are looking for  4 or 5 young people aged between 8 and 14  who would be able to come to the Royal Pavilion for a recording session in March.  The recordings will then be taken away and edited for May so this is a one off engagement!
Details as follows: Thursday March 10th . Meet in Brighton Dome Foyer Bar, Church Street 4.30 pm for an introduction to the project followed by a recording session which  will take place in the Royal Pavilion Music Room from 6pm – 7.30 (latest)
Licensed  chaperones are available but Parents can accompany their children at all times including entrance to the Royal Pavilion.
Refreshments and travel expenses will be provided.
Anyone interested in taking part will be sent letters  to practise reading  –nobody is expected to learn their scripts!
Please contact: Pauline Freestone at drblighty@nutkhut.co.uk  with the name and age of your child and an email contact.

Are you free to record your voice at the Royal Pavilion for a new project?

downloadThe Dr Blighty project team will be holding some voice recordings in the Music Room at the Royal Pavilion on the evening of Thursday 10 March (5.30pm – 10.30pm) and are looking for some older voices to record as part of this.
It would also mean free entry to this part of the Pavilion during that time, in the beautiful Music Room.
Those being recorded wouldn’t need to be present the whole time (unless you wanted to be) but would be needed for about half an hour each. These recordings will be part of the Dr Blighty theatre performance as a recording on the following dates:
 24 – 29 May 2016
Brighton Festival
Royal Pavilion Garden
Brighton BN1 1EE

Rendezvous project with Fabrica

FablogoA video interview with some of the project managers involved with the Rendezvous project at Fabrica gallery here. I was away so was spared hearing myself speak!

The funding for this from the Arts Council has now come to an end. The events and activities from the project will be much missed as a result.

Information about the project is available on the project specific Growing an Older Audience website.

Strike a Light and Fabrica are currently in talks with a view to submitting further funding for other kinds of related project activities in 2015 and 2016.
