Songs and Dances of Death

In spring 2013, we began our 15 month exploration into the work of Modest Musorgsky witha special digital and performance project built on the beautiful song cycle Songs and Dances of Death.
With our wonderful singers Anne Marie Owens and Byron Jackson, and pianists Sergey Rybin and Stephen Maughan, we toured the city of Birmingham, giving pop up performances in exciting locations including The Irish Community CentreSifa FiresideKerria Court and Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College.  Each performance was filmed by our crew of trainee film makers and with the support of BBC Academy, BBC Birmingham and a team of professional mentors, we produced 22 short films.
