Support Nightswimming's newest theatrical adventure: THE WOLF IN THE VOICE!
The Wolf in the Voice is co-created by Martin Julien and Brian Quirt, with performers Thom Allison, Neema Bickersteth and Jane Miller.
Wolf, as we call it, is a theatrical investigation of the singers’ vocal break, that dangerous place where the human voice cracks that is feared by all professional singers (and teenage boys). With these three remarkable singers, Martin and Brian are exploring the profound vulnerability of singing, though a new piece that includes stories from Thom, Neema and Jane about when their voices have failed them. It also includes astounding arrangements of songs such as Stephen Sondheim’s Pretty Ladies, an operatic aria by Bellini, and, naturally, Meatloaf’s Bat Out of Hell.
A wonderful workshop presentation in December convinced us to accelerate the development of Wolf by adding a week-long workshop in July to prepare for a showcase in December 2019. This is the sort of new work that can only be developed in the studio with all the artists contributing their voices... and you can make that happen.
Nightswimming must raise $7,500 by the end of July to cover artist fees and studio space for Wolf - and we need your support.
