Gwyneth Herbert Letters I Haven’t Written★★★★★"A remarkably gifted talent"- The Guardian When was the last time you wrote a letter? Tag, swipe, meme, like; the way we communicate is constantly changing. Letters I Haven't Written invites you on a voyage into the lost art of letter-writing through music and film by award-winning composer/performer Gwyneth Herbert and leading video artist Will Duke (Complicite The Encounter). Original songs are interwoven with film and live video to create a captivating story that takes audiences from a blank piece of paper to the joyful sharing of voice. An exceptional creative team working across contemporary music and theatre collaborate in this distinctive new show which, in a world of status updates and limited characters, seeks a more meaningful way to speak with – and listen to – each other.Line-up:Gwyneth Herbert – voice, french horn, ukuleleNed Cartwright – piano, saxSam Burgess – bassAl Cherry – guitarCorrie Dick – drums Will Duke - Video ArtistSusannah Tresilian – Director Tom Rogers - DesignerCo-commissioned by Snape Maltings and OCMProduced by Sound UKFunded by Arts Council England National Lottery, Hastings Borough Council and East Sussex Arts Partnership.
