Barefoot Opera
CLASH

Seven Hastings choirs converge on Sussex Coast College's atrium in a thrilling choral invasion. Each has teamed up with a composer and a poet to create musical narratives inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry. The choral creations are linked by a new piece from Orlando Gough, accompanied by percussionists Liam Genockey and Emmanuel McDonald.

Choirs: Hastings Philharmonic, Sound Waves, Vocal Explosion, Hastings Youth Choir, Opera South East, Harmony1 and Hastings Calling (a new choir specially formed by Otti Albietz).

Composers: Orlando Gough, Karen Wimhurst, Ken Roberts, Juliet Russell, Otti Albietz, Marcio da Silva and Frances Lynch.

Poets: Jill Fricker, Frances Viner, Anne Rouse and Antony Mair.

With thanks to Tom Hammick.
