A Natural Anthem
“All We Grown We Own, Yield To The Poppy Fields.”
- A Natural Anthem
Inspired by themes of security, propaganda and Isaac Rosenberg’s ‘Returning, We Hear the Larks’, this specially commissioned, poignant and humorous anthem-led performance and multi-art form installation explores the impact of threat, community action during times of war, and today’s fight to protect the natural world. From this, a new micro-nation is born...
The work explores the fine line between fact and fiction, mixing realities through spoken and recorded work, photographic images and artefacts, alongside stirring musical performances.
A Natural Anthem premiered at Newcastle Arts Centre Gallery 24 July – 9 August 2014 and
will be touring the North Area 2014-15.
