Following on from their success in the London Sinfonietta’s inaugural Blue Touch Paper programme promoting the next generation of composers and interdisciplinary collaborators, composer Elspeth Brooke, puppeteer Seonaid Goody and director Anna Jones continue their ground-breaking collaboration to create an original version of an extraordinary myth.

At The World’s Edge tells the story of Persephone’s descent into the Underworld and her mother’s epic search to get her back. Composed for chamber trio, electronic soundscape and puppeteers, this powerful new work combines humour, virtuosity and adventure to create a feast for the eyes and ears.

Performed as part of Salisbury International Arts Festival 2013. Suitable for audiences aged eight and above.

R. Murray Schafer : The Crown of Ariadne (two movements)
