27 Songs (The Circle Line Choral Society)
Durational performance, the London Underground.
Commissioned by Nomad, 2006



 

'27 Songs' evolved from a series of conversations with Nomad Director Michael Smyth about public places as performance space, the experiential qualities of vocal sounds, group-song and performance anxiety.

Spending the whole journey round the Circle Line encouraging unsuspecting commuters to form choirs resulted in some beguiling video footage. The combination of my slight discomfort, those people who engaged and those people who stubbornly "ignored" proceedings add meaning to each song.
