Dial M was a bit of a change from the children’s theatre I spent spring 2016 making: The Box of Photographs, a new play by Daniel Jamieson at the Polka Theatre, and We’re Stuck!, an interactive adventure about robots, maths and neuroscience commissioned by Shoreditch Town Hall and Z-arts, produced by China Plate.

Over the summer, We’re Here, the ambitious choral project I created with Daniel Bye and Boff Whalley, culminated in an extraordinary day of live performance at Somerset House, as part of the Somerset House Utopia 2016 programme.  It was thrilling to bring such a diverse group of singers together for one day only, part of a season that also included Jeremy Deller and Fraser Muggeridge.

Visit the We’re Here Facebook page to see video of the performance and read more about the project.
