Laura Bowler’s new work Distance is a ground-breaking multimedia chamber piece centred around flight, distance and how they both connect to our psychological distancing from our environment and how that affects people’s inability to act on climate change.

Soprano Juliet Fraser will perform in London whilst the Talea Ensemble will be livestreamed directly from New York City.  The piece includes verbatim text from interviews with the performers about their experiences of air travel, and will challenge audiences to think of their own carbon footprint through an accompanying installation.

Co-commissioned by Spitalfields Music with sound festival and Cheltenham International Festival of Music, with the support of the New Music Commission Fund, the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, Hope Scott Trust and individual donors.
