Undersong is Verity’s next major work, currently under development. A work-in-progress performance, staged as part of Bristol Old Vic’s Ferment Fortnight in July 2017, featured intricate vocal improvisations and new ensemble a cappella pieces, playing with scale and perspective as sound weaved its way around the auditorium.
Work-in-progress performance supported by Complicite and Bristol Old Vic Ferment
