Blackbirds and Blue Helmets

What does our reaction to war and division in another country say about us? Do we start to question our own nation, our own identity? In the former communist bloc, on the borders of Europe, one nation had a strong, progressive, shared identity. Then came nationalism and war in which 100,000 people were killed. A personal…

Maiden In the Moor and Sefiroth

A double bill of work setting the revived music of a vanished culture alongside the living, evolving traditions of a banished people.
