Visual to Vocal

A new project for people living with dementia and their carers, in partnership with Dulwich Picture Gallery and Dulwich College.

In 2016 ETO is collaborating once more with Dulwich Picture Gallery and with Dulwich College in ‘Visual to Vocal’, a groundbreaking project that sees us creating new work in response to paintings in the Gallery’s collection. The project is for people living with dementia and their carers, and takes place on 10 consecutive weeks with a performance at the end.

This is the fourth project at the Gallery, and has an unusual starting point. The famous actor Edward Alleyn played the title role in Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus, and his response to the apparition of real devils on stage in one performance was to donate the sums that led to the founding of Dulwich College. In our story – to be performed in the College on *5th July at 6.00pm *– the participants play angels set on saving some boys from damnation.

The composer is Rachel Leach and the writer/director is Tim Yealland. We are joined by students from Dulwich College, and by Pedro Merchan (bassoon) and Raph Clarkson (trombone).

There will be a pop-up performance by this year’s Visual to Vocal participants on Tuesday 28 June at 3.30pm at Dulwich Picture Gallery. All are welcome to attend: please click here for directions and visitor information.
