Members of Crisis – all adults who have experienced homelessness – perform original music they have devised with LPO musicians and a workshop leader during a week-long creative project.
Crisis Creates offers a channel for participants to express themselves and to combat the isolation that comes hand-in-hand with precarious living situations. Using the music of the Orchestra as their starting point, the group creates new and powerful work which they bring to the Royal Festival Hall stage.
For this performance, the group have been inspired by Galina Ustvolskaya’s Symphonic Poem No.1, which the LPO performs later in the evening, and by the poetry of Gianni Rodari whose work inspired Ustvolskaya.
This event is free to attend, with no ticket booking required. The performance will finish at approximately 6.45pm.
