Performers on stage

The world’s first large-scale ensemble for disabled professional musicians

In performances that put you front and centre on stage, prepare for a total immersion as you wander within environments of sights and sounds presented by The British Paraorchestra, conducted by Charles Hazlewood.

In C

Experience Terry Riley’s iconic In C, as you stand or wander around musicians seated in a full-circle, and listen as the piece slowly unfolds and morphs creating an atmospheric sonic space.

The Nature of Why

In The Nature of Why theoretical physicist Richard Freyman’s search for meaning in the world around us is tailored into an immersive encounter featuring dancers moving to the music by Will Gregory. This performance also features string players from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
