Golden Fables

Rehearsals are well underway for a new project with The Berkeley Ensemble. Golden Fables 2012 is a cultural olympiad spectacular in Lincolnshire, directed by Susannah Tresillian; it draws together actors, video projections, community choirs, poet laureates, and us, in a celebration of the fables and heritage of Lincolnshire. We are performing two new pieces: Luke Carver Goss' The Drowned Moon, and Gabriel Prokofiev's The Ghost of Gunby Hall. Written for violin, cello, clarinet / bass clarinet, piano, and electronic track, with the actors' spoken script over the top, it's a rhythmically complex piece and requires a lot of rehearsal to fit everything together. We're enjoying the unusual addition of Gabriel and his laptop as part of the chamber ensemble setup!
