The Song Project archiveA collaboration between nine leading artists to create an intimate concert in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs. This month, Dutch singer-songwriter Wende and Royal Court Artistic Associate Chloe Lamford invited five Royal Court writers - EV Crowe, Sabrina Mahfouz, Somalia Seaton, Stef Smith and Debris Stevenson - to spend a day together talking. Rage, dancing, sex, DNA, theatre, love, our mothers, hatred, ritual – themes that came up were shaped into stories into lyrics. Wende and Isobel Waller-Bridge locked themselves away with a piano and a laptop turning the lyrics into songs. Chloe and Imogen Knight began to visualise what the performance might be. What they presented to a small room at the end of just one week was phenomenal. Now they'll spend the next few months developing what they have started to culminate in four nights of live music performed by Wende in June. We don't know what this is yet. Join us to experience it.
