Extraordinary Voices

Frank Chickens Barbican July 2011  6

Date: July 2011

Client: Home Live Art / Barbican

Location: Barbican, London

Joule delivered the production as well as some of the programming for this fantastic Barbican Weekender: Extraordinary Voices-  a packed two days celebrating and exploring the voice in performance, music, art and film. Joule programmed the spoken word artists, beat boxers and music at this high profile London venue, and provided production management and artist liaison for around 700 performers and the staging of the performances across the foyers and other spaces both inside and outside the Barbican. Artists included Bob & Roberta Smith’s Apathy Band, Streetwise Opera, London Bulgarian Choir, Tongue Fu, The Boxettes, Mikhail Karakis, The Kaos Signing Choir for Deaf & Hearing Children, Grammy-nominated Cajun band Feufollet, The London Gay Men’s Chorus, the Frank Chickens and the Transsiberian March Band, plus stunning performances from storytellers and artist installations across Barbican Centre. There were numerous opportunities for audience participation in Ida Barr’s inter-generational Mash-up, Phil Minton’s Feral Choir and ‘Swarm’ by Orlando Gough.

 

“Extraordinary Voices seemed to encapsulate the very best of what London can offer – the chance to discover something new, a real and engaging mix of audience and a cultural collaboration between Home and the Barbican, all of which came together to create a very special weekend.” 
Moira Sinclair, Executive Director, Arts Council of England, London.
