⭐ BLACK MATTER – A NEW SONG CYCLE BY GILES TERERA TO BE STREAMED ONLINE ⭐
Black Matter – a new song cycle by Giles Terera, the Olivier Award winning star of Hamilton, will be streamed online, it has been announced.
Black Matter is a new song cycle written in response to these tumultuous times, which sees Terera perform songs of protest, joy, anger and love.
Terera reveals “I live in Soho, London. I was there throughout last summer. I saw Soho shift from deserted tranquillity, where the only sounds were birds and church bells to the noise and heat of demands for social justice and civil unrest. I saw couples and families sneaking bike rides and I saw police brutality. Homelessness and empty properties. People helping each other and people hurting each other. Confusion and hope and strength.
I found myself taking my guitar and writing about what I was seeing and feeling and thinking.
I ended up writing a collection of songs and my aim was to respond immediately to what I was experiencing. I wanted to answer the question: how do we communicate in this atmosphere? How do we find love and balance and strength?”
Filmed during lockdown in Soho’s Crazy Coqs with multiple cameras.
Giles Terera in Black Matter will be stream on 16th February – 6:30pm GMT. It will be available to view up to a week after the event has ended and can be accessed worldwide.
