In a fixed location a group of local writers type out observations of the world unfolding around them. In that same moment, a town choir receives their words via a large screen and sings them out to the public. Drawing on patterns of relaying information that mirror Twitter or Facebook, Town Choir treats everyday considerations as news. Intimate and minute details are transmitted through the ether, and then sung in an epic choral declaration.
Co-produced by MAYK and The Creative Foundation. Town Choir is supported using public funding by Arts Council England through its Strategic Touring Fund. Theatre Replacement acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
