Help create a new, digitally-realised version of the Humming Chorus that will be broadcast from TOGETHER installation in Medway later in the year.

Tania Holland Williams of Fat Lady Opera invites you to take part a series of ensemble singing and movement workshops that take inspiration from Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly.

Across three workshops, participants will have the opportunity to sing together; explore conventions around the making of a promise; learn the haunting humming chorus from the opera; take part in a basic Japanese Taikiken sequence and explore ways in which we might synchronise our breathing and gesture.

Tania will work with recordings from the sessions to create a new digital operatic work that will be broadcast after the festival from TOGETHER. This will be at selected times between 24 September 2021 – 10 October 2021 at Chatham Riverside.

TOGETHER by Lucid Creates is a spectacular pavilion filled with video, light and sound in which audiences can feel part of an immersive, collaborative experience. Made up of three huge rings suspended between four giant pillars, TOGETHER is breathtaking in its scale, sound and visuals.
