Description:

While reporting the outbreak of war, a journalist is held at gunpoint, caught in the no-man's land between two nations.

War Correspondents is a collaboration between composer Helen Chadwick (Dalston Songs) and choreographer Steven Hoggett (co-founder of Frantic Assembly and Oliver award winner for Black Watch).

Testimonies, music and physicality fuse into a powerful, multi-disciplined song cycle performance which depicts the extraordinary stories and life changing experiences of war journalists - men and women who risk their lives in extreme circumstances.

Suitable for ages 12+.

Commissioned by: Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Sage Gateshead and New Writing North for Durham Book Festival. Produced by Dramatic Solutions.

Supported by:Arts Council England, Royal Borough of Greenwich, Royal Greenwich Festivals and Old Royal Naval College
