The lost art of letter writing
When was the last time you wrote a letter? Tag, swipe, meme, like; the way we communicate is constantly changing. Letters I Haven’t Writteninvites you on a voyage into the lost art of letter-writing through music and film by award-winning composer/performer Gwyneth Herbert and leading video artist Will Duke (Complicite The Encounter).
Original songs are interwoven with film and live video to create a captivating story that takes audiences from a blank piece of paper to the joyful sharing of voice. An exceptional creative team working across contemporary music and theatre collaborate in this distinctive new show which, in a world of status updates and limited characters, seeks a more meaningful way to speak with – and listen to – each other.
New single, You’re Welcome out now, exploring heartbreaking journey of Windrush generation in Britain.
