The Sacred Sounds Women’s Choir are thrilled to have been invited back by Manchester International Festival to be part of MIF15.
Working with visual artist Douglas Gordon, the Sacred Sounds Women’s Choir will provide a vocal soundscape to a new production called Neck of the Woods.
Neck of the Woods
MIF has invited Turner Prize-winning artist Douglas Gordon (Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno) and celebrated pianist Hélène Grimaud to create Neck of the Woods, a portrait of the wolf brought to life in a startling collision of visual art, music and theatre.
On the stage of HOME’s intimate new theatre, legendary actor Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter, Broadchurch) will recite and perform the story of the wolf as never before.
Grimaud will curate and perform a series of works for piano, while Gordon will create the visual world. They have collaborated with Rampling and New York-based novelist and playwright Veronica Gonzalez Peña, weaving together stories, music, motifs, phrases and fragments to build this lyrical and beguiling work.
Neck of the Woods has been commissioned by Manchester International Festival, HOME, Bergen International Festival/KODE, FAENA ART and MIF Creative. Produced by Manchester International Festival. Supported by the Foyle Foundation and MIF Creative Circle.
