Performance at Wigmore Hall with the Manasamitra Project. LULLABY – SONIC CRADLE is a new performance developed from a contemporary musical exploration of night time sounds interspersed with lullabies from India. In this touring production, performances will be underscored by a unique soundscape, created from the songs, lullabies and stories collated from community workshops in each area. Join music leader and sound artist Duncan Chapman, along with South Asian arts organisation Manasamitra, to take part in a musical workshop, share your memories of lullabies, and create night time sounds and songs.
This Arts Council England supported project includes a series of residencies in Gateshead, York, Middlesbrough and Eastleigh, during which company members meet and share night time traditions and songs. Using our unique ‘Lullaby Booth’ format, Manasamitra will create a collaborative sharing space for the community groups with whom we work.
