A symphony for one.

Tuning forks are traditionally used for pitching – unheard by audiences – but up close they create beautiful, surprisingly resonate sounds as instruments in their own right. By blending these metallic tones with live voice, two performers create a vivid and unique sound world for individual audience members.

Symphony was originally commissioned by The Yard Theatre for their Walkie Talkies Festival in Olympic Park, London. It was subsequently presented at Mayfest and the National Theatre’s Riverstage.

This small piece is available for touring - usually alongside other larger projects, but sometimes on its own. Any enquiries please contact
