Company: Helen Chadwick Song Theatre
Co-directed by Steven Hoggett and Helen Chadwick
Composed by Helen Chadwick
Creative Associate Miriam Nabarro
Co-commissioned by Greenwich + Docklands International Festival, Sage Gateshead and New Writing North for Durham Book Festival. Supported by Birmingham Repertory Theatre.
While reporting the outbreak of war, a journalist is held at gunpoint, caught in the no-man's land between two nations.
Testimonies, music and physically fuse into a powerful, multi-disciplined song cycle performance which depicts the extraordinary stories and life-changing experiences of war journalists - men and women who risk their lives in extreme circumstances.
Helen and creative associate Miriam Nabarro have interviewed journalists covering many conflicts, including those in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, DRC, Iraq and Liberia.
The World Premiere tour of War Correspondents has been commissioned to coincide with the First World War Centenary. This poignant song-theatre performance has been created by composer Helen Chadwick and choreographer Steven Hoggett (co-founder of Frantic Assembly and Oliver award winner for Black Watch).
Produced by Dramatic Solutions.
