London Sinfonietta presents
The Journey Between Us
London Sinfonietta’s week-long residency at Southwark Playhouse explores the intricate links between music and storytelling.
Personal, compelling and deeply powerful, four short stories read by acclaimed actress Lisa Dwan traverse the challenges of personal relationships in modern life.
A world premiere by RPS award-winning composer Samantha Fernando intersperses the words, giving space for a different kind of listening. Retreat inside your own world and let the musical interludes add depths of meaning to the stories: What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver, A Temporary Matter by Jhumpa Lahiri, The Silence of Mrs Iln and Lost Things by Lydia Davis.
Samantha Fernando’s work has been commissioned by London Sinfonietta Entrepreneurs Michael & Patricia McLaren-Turner and an Elliott Carter legacy.
Blue Touch Paper projects are supported by London Sinfonietta Entrepreneur Anthony Mackintosh and the Garrick Charitable Trust.
