An entertaining, questioning and brutally honest look at the place where we live and the reasons that we live there.
35 people in a singing dialogue with dancer Emily Dobson, weave a beautiful story of the hardships and joys we face and the natural world we inhabit, “at the end of the line” in the far west of Cornwall.
This exciting project, has seen members of the choir with musical director Vicky Abbott, creating original songs for the first time since the choir’s inception over 10 years ago, in an artistic exploration, combining dance, music and words, with Agnieszka Blonska, an accomplished theatre director.
