New Project: Soonchild! 

Hi all! 

We have been super busy recently with a new project and we can now share it with you all! We have been commissioned by Red Earth Theatre to compose the score and work with them on their upcoming production of Soonchild which will tour nationally in 2019!! We have also been awarded funding by the Arts Council to research into how to make the music we compose accessible to the deaf community, which is very exciting, so we have lots of work ahead of us! Can't wait to share all our work and findings with you all! We will still be Threadeding in our usual capacity alongside this though, so will hopefully catch lots of you at a gig soon :) xxx

Soonchild

Luton Library Theatre, Luton

Dig out your snowshoes for an Arctic Adventure with live music and songs, 3D and shadow puppets, creative captioning, integrated sign language and song, plus the cosmic brilliance of the Northern Lights.

Set somewhere north of the Arctic Circle, Soonchild is the story of a shaman known as Sixteen Face John who feels out of step with the modern world. John’s wife is expecting a baby, but the Soonchild refuses to be born until she can hear the World Songs – special music that is essential for the world to exist.

So, John sets out on a quest which takes him through many life-times, and thrilling encounters with a constellation of cool characters and animal spirits – including the most magnificent of all Polar creatures: the Ice Bear. John must find the World Songs for Soonchild and save the world, before it’s too late.

So big-hearted, this show will melt an iceberg.
