Dreams of Peace & Freedom #noordinaryseason
In the lead up to March 29th, in a world of chaos and panic where everyone feels unsure, we want to tell you a story of how good things can come out of bad times, and how inspiration and idealism can win against fear and uncertainty. Through our show, Dreams of Peace & Freedom, we invite people to reflect on the past, to empower us to have a prosperous and peaceful future.
This season, English Cabaret needs your support to spread the message of peace and freedom around the UK.
'One of most beautiful things I have ever heard...sublime'
'...the most incredibly stimulating piece of history. Stunning.'
Baroness Helena Kennedy
In Performance at Memorium Nuremberg Trials
Conceived by Tom Blackmore, Dreams of Peace & Freedom is a moving song cycle exploring the birth of modern human rights after WWII. The writings of David Maxwell Fyfe, a British prosecutor at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, and champion of the European Convention weave with Sue Casson's musical settings of the poets who inspired him. Told by members of his family, with a backdrop of archive film, images, and words, the show premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and has since toured nationally and internationally.
You can find out more about the show and read more reviews here.
With your backing, we will establish a new vision of the past to point the way to a hopeful future.
