Not Drowning But Waving: RAPT (Choir With No Name Music Director)
Co-commissioned by University College London Culture, this new RAPT project will begin R&D in June 2019. Through key autobiographical stories, we take a coastal tour of the UK exploring the notion of staying afloat and 'tipping points' across socio-cultural and scientific domains with academics, journalists, communities and individuals.
Singers from The Choir With No Name, Brighton are being offered the chance to participate in this project, using their own words to sing newly composed sea shanties about the changing landscape of their coastal community. Working alongside composer James Redwood and Director Emma Higham, Freya will be coming on board as choir director for this project.
