PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT IS NOW ONLY AVAILABLE AS A LIVE STREAM
THIS SHOW WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR 20 DECEMBER BUT WAS POSTPONED TO 31 JANUARY. SADLY WE HAVE HAD TO POSTPONE IT AGAIN DUE TO TIER 4 RESTRICTIONS. THE NEW DATE IS NOW SUNDAY 28 MARCH. APOLOGIES.
A strikingly original performer and composer, Gwyneth Herbert has been hailed as one the most imaginative and idiosyncratic artists of her generation. Since her first album “Bittersweet and Blue” she has produced a huge canon of work, including her last album, "Letters I Haven’t Written", which was accompanied by an ambitious live show exploring the struggle for connection through film, storytelling and song. And not content with being one of the finest singer/songwriters in the country (really) She is the co-creator of six musicals, including Bristol Old Vic’s record-breaking production of “A Christmas Carol” with Tom Morris and Lee Lyford, which – after a sell-out run – saw her donning her red velvet trouser suit and wig for a second year in a row. Other composition work has involved major commissions from the London Sinfonietta, Mahogany Opera Group, Roman River Festival, Snape Maltings, and conducting her own film score at the BFI.
This 606 performance is a refreshed reimagining of Gwyn's 'Christmas Letters Special' which was sadly postponed due to Covid restrictions, but has re-emerged with a new title, Rewind / Pause / Play. This interactive programme will reach out to the world to "honour where we've been, meet where we are, and look to where we might be going".
