CLIMATE CHANGE performance review
The CLIMATE CHANGE performance, presented by The Dionysus Ensemble in partnership with HOME Slough took place on Saturday 6 November in the former B&M store in the Queensmere Observatory Shopping Centre.
The Dionysus Ensemble spent several weeks working with Iqra Primary School and local Slough community members to create new songs and music that explored Climate Change to coincide with COP26.
An extract from one of the songs created:
“Tiger with stripes, laying in the cold.
Polar bears dying. Lions biting birds.
Help the world by picking up litter, and protecting the animals.“
The songs were presented in two performances to members of the public and family members in the atmospheric disused shop within the Queensmere. The pieces created allowed us to think about the importance of environmental protection.
Alongside the performances, the children created artworks responding to Climate Change, which were displayed alongside work created by local artists from Slough.Newer Blog Post Older Blog Post Back to All Posts
