LIVE : The People’s String Foundation
October 10 @ 15:00pm - 16:45pm£6 – £30
“Res Publica” is a brand-new musical touring show from: The People’s String Foundation. During this piece the band packs a 32-piece Gypsy Orchestra into a suitcase and takes the audience on an incredible journey of discovery. Using music, puppetry, art, cinematography and animation all set to the backdrop of a “Virtual Orchestra,” this show is unique and combines many art forms to create one immersive piece.
“The People String Foundation takes you by surprise-you think…fun loving guys filled with a sense of joie de vie !But very quickly you realise they’re much more than that-they are highly skilled musicians who combine virtuosity with a passion for genuine shared event…rare. ”
Mike Shepherd Artistic Director Kneehigh Theatre Company ****
“The vocal performances are remarkable and the orchestrations are inventive, exploratory and beautifully performed. The entire piece is fresh and youthfully enthusiastic with clear production values on a classical scale. Surely these musicians and this piece are worthy of consideration for this year’s Mercury prize.”
Ralph McTell. ****
“One of the great wonders of the West. Stonking, earthy, organic, delicate & barn-storming.”
Charles Hazlewood, Conducter & Composer ****
