SONG

A collaboration between acclaimed Brazilian visual artist Laura Lima, UK musician James Tyson, and Ranters Theatre.

SONG is an installation that takes the idea of a performance, removes the stage, and transforms the space into an atmospheric listening room filled with songs, the smells and sounds from nature, and the colours of day’s end. At the centre of the work is a song cycle that sits within a concept of a constructed landscape. The work asks questions surrounding our relationship to the natural world, about place, wanderings, and the nature of purposeful existence.


‘SONG is exceptional installation, crafted with care and beautiful in execution.’

‘The soundscapes were often breathtaking and the subtle lighting really made you feel like you have been transported to somewhere new.’
