‘Tuneful tribute to frontline journalists. ’
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+.
