The Cello of Mr. O

This production by suddenlyLISTEN is based on the lovely book by Jane Cutler, and features performers Norman Adams (cello) and Karen Bassett (actor). First performances will be Saturday October 27th at the Bus Stop Theatre, 2203 Gottingen, Halifax, 2 pm and 8 pm.

My score and sound design is centred on Norm’s performance of excerpts from the marvellous Bach solo cello suites, complemented by some original bridges and underscores. Karen brings the thought-provoking text to life, while Lukas Pearse provides visual images. Theatrical direction is by Theo Pitsiavas.

The performance is about 30 minutes, and is aimed at family audiences. It will be followed by an educational session about children and war.  Hope you can come!
