Visual to Vocal 2017

Visual to Vocal is a groundbreaking project that sees ETO creating new work in response to paintings in the Dulwich Picture Gallery’s collection.

In 2017 ETO is collaborating once more with Dulwich Picture Gallery and with Dulwich College. Visual to Vocal is 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 fifth project at the Gallery, and celebrates the 250th anniversary of the founding of the Gallery. We will explore the lives, studios and milieu of several of the key painters represented in the collection, including Rembrandt and Gainsborough. The final piece will be a staged song-cycle that brings these artists to life in surprising ways.

The project seeks to give a creative voice to people living with dementia, and puts them at the heart of a creative process, writing lyrics, helping with melodies as well as with the story.

The composer is Rachel Leach. We are joined by students from Dulwich College, and by Matthew Wilsher (clarinet).

There will be a pop-up performance by this year’s Visual to Vocal participants on Tuesday 16 May at 3.30pm at Dulwich Picture Gallery. All are welcome to attend: please click here for directions and visitor information.

Visual to Vocal is supported by City Bridge Trust, the City of London Corporation’s charitable funder.
