Composer Laura Bowler needs you to contribute to her next piece! Submit responses to the following questions and you could see your words being used in a new work for ensemble and voice that addresses most serious issue of our generation: the climate emergency.
[Untitled] is a new commission by composer Laura Bowler and librettist Cordelia Lynn for soprano and ensemble, directed by Katie Mitchell. It describes the intimate psychological journey of a woman's response to the Climate Crisis.
We want to write a piece that responds to our audience's relationship to the crisis by using verbatim texts. We would love to hear your answers to the three questions below. There are no 'right' answers. In fact, a range of feelings and emotions, politics and opinions will be essential for us. We only ask that you try to be truthful.
We would like responses to be in the form of audio recordings or video recordings (self-tapes), however, if you would prefer to submit a written response we would be incredibly grateful to hear your thoughts in the written word instead.
If you would prefer, you can submit your responses by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that by submitting your responses to these questions you give permission for the videos/recordings/text to be used in the creative process and possibly to be in the performance of the work in April 2021.
