This gathering and performance were just one result of this project as much of it involved interactions and rehersals between strangers, over the 18 months of intermitent pre-production work the singers learned Shape Note and Sufi singing together as family, performing songs that are commonly sang in private and for the purpose of contemplation, prayer and solidarity. Produced, filmed and installed in location in Brierfield, Lancashire, England.
Concept, Direction: Larry Mayorga. Composer, Conductor: Ron Pen. Rehersal Director: Alex Hindle. Production: Larry Mayorga, Alison Surtees
