Aldeburgh Festival 2022



Music that moves, that rages, and ultimately that unites us: the London Sinfonietta revisits Laura Bowler’s ground-breaking commission which addresses the most serious issue of our generation. Houses Slide for soprano and ensemble describes one woman's intimate psychological journey to figure out her response to the climate crisis, from an initial depressing realisation of the gravity of the issue, through to her refusal to be overwhelmed and decision to take positive action. 

The ground-breaking bicycle-powered concert presentation is conceived and directed by acclaimed theatre director Katie Mitchell.
