Streetwise Opera's Re:sound is a year-long festival that will encourage artists and audiences to rediscover the cities they live in, through the eyes – and voices – of people who’ve been homeless. The festival brings together nine composers (Elizabeth Kelly, Michael Betteridge, Kemal Yusuf, Alison Willis, Tim Lole, Nicholas Lewis, Emily Levy, Electra Perivolaris, Ben See), three choreographers (including Sophie Thorpe: Tom Dale Company and Kate Cox), three designers, one filmmaker, musical director Jonathan Ainscough and over 200 participants in Streetwise Opera’s workshops in London, Nottingham and Manchester. Over the next year, these artists and the people who have been homeless will collaborate to co-create nine micro-operas that will be performed alongside each other – resounding together - in March 2023.

Audiences will be able to follow Re:sound through a year-long Digital Festival, providing a window into the process of creating the nine micro-operas.

Further information from the Re:sound website.
