The Soaring Sky


The Soaring Sky makes audible a timeless changing landscape between dunes, sea and sky through a choral corridor of live voices inspired by the song of local and migratory birds at Hengistbury Head, Dorset. A reflective journey for each audience member through this unique and iconic site. Sung by local singers from a graphic choral score composed by Louise Drewett & Alex Nikiporenko.

Commissioned by Inside Out Dorset Festival and Activate Performing Arts as part of Hengistbury Headlines 2016.

Costumes in collaboration with  students from Arts University Bournemouth BA Costume and Performance Design: Designed by Pip Atkins, made by Charlotte Court, Georgina Hoare, Lauren Horton & Imogen Howard. With thanks to Adele Keeley.
