Then in the bar on Thursday Feb 25th theres Helen Chadwicks “Songs for the Way Home”, a powerful, funny and touching piece of song theatre characterised by a unique blend of stunning harmony songs, body percussion and witty choreography about the meaning of home. It is inspired by interviews with Helen’s neighbours in her local community of Dalston, East London, where many different cultures co-exist, and tells stories in song around ideas of roots, displacement, and belonging.Helen Chadwick Song Theatre has performed at the Royal Opera House, for Amnesty International’s and Peace Brigades International’s birthday celebrations, as well as international festivals in Europe and Latin America.The Knighton show will feature a trio version of the original show.
Helen, as founder of the mass choir charity project Sing for Water, has helped raise over £800,000 for water projects at WaterAid, through projects led by choir leaders all over the UK, Europe and Australia, so any profit will go to this charity.
Reviews for Helen Chadwicks work have been nothing less than glowing, with The Guardian discribing her as “an exquisite find”, The Independent calling her “that brilliant bard” and the Evening Standard saying her work “pierces the heart”.
