The ABOUT US project brings together an outstanding group of intergenerational artists from dance, visual art, experimental music and theatre including: director/choreographer Jacky Lansley, composer Sylvia Hallett, cinematographer Roswitha Chesher, lighting/technical designer Nao Nagai and dramaturg Ramsay Burt.

DRS is delighted to announce it has received an award from the PRS Foundation to support the creation of new music by the leading experimental composer Sylvia Hallett for the mixed-media performance ‘ABOUT US’ directed and choreographed by Jacky Lansley.

Repetition of these stories through soundscapes, film and live performance becomes celebratory and insightful, as large and small events are framed and made special.
