Remembrance: Returning We Hear The Larks

Remembrance: Returning We Hear The Larks

2-3 November 2018, Lancaster Priory, Lancaster

As part Light Up Lancaster 2018, Louise is creating a site-specific performance-installtion at Lancaster Priory entitled Remembrance: Returning, We Hear The Larks.

This work will mark the centenary of the end of World War One, and reflect on lives changed forever by that conflict and the loss of those who never returned home to Lancaster. Remembrance: Returning, We Hear The Larks will use artefacts and objects found in and associated with Lancaster Priory in combination with a paper installation of red-roses to create an immersive candle-lit performance-installation involving singers from the Priory choir.
