Funded by Arts Council England and the PRS Foundation and inspired by accounts of Jocelyn’s aunt Phyllis Williams’ struggle with the internal voices she heard, ‘Hearing Voices’ played a four-night run in the intriguing surroundings of the Coronet Print Room in Notting Hill. Mezzo-soprano Melanie Pappenheim embodies the pain, laughter and protest of four women who have had experience of mental illness throughout the last century. ‘The reality is beautiful and celebratory. There are even laughs. Much of this is down to the score – the Reich influences, the luscious strings and clarinet, and the effortless interweaving of mezzo soprano and live instrumental ensemble. Pook’s orchestration is deft.’ – Thoroughly Good Blog. The piece is a collaboration between Jocelyn, Melanie and director/dramaturg Emma Bernard with film projections by Dragan Aleksic, who created a number of new art installations for the hidden spaces of this unique Victorian playhouse. Here’s our trailer; a report about the show on London Live and reviews of the event from thoroughly good blog, The Reviews Hub and The Cusp.
