Between Stars is inspired by the magnificent cathedral as well as the darkness and clarity of the seasonal Norfolk sky. It will be a large-scale promenade performance piece featuring the 150-member choir along with professional solo singers and instrumentalists.
As with all Voice Project performances the event takes the form of a conversation between the singers and musicians and the building that hosts them. Tim Tracey of Tin House has created a spectacular lighting design to reveal hitherto hidden parts of the cathedral and most of the music has been specially-created for the event.
Composed by Helen Chadwick (who has been commissioned by the likes of the Royal Opera House, English Touring Opera, the BBC, Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre), Orlando Gough, acknowledged as one of the UK’s most important composers and Voice Project co-director Jon Baker, it will be directed by Voice Project co-directors Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker.
Between Stars is the first part of a new ambitious project the Arms of Sleep, a series of pieces exploring ideas around sleeping and waking.
