Giles Terera In Black Matter | Online Event
6:30PM, Wednesday, March 24, 2021
Venue: Online Streamed Production
THIS IS AN ONLINE STREAMED PRODUCTION FOR YOU TO WATCH AT HOME A new song cycle by GILES TERERA, the Olivier Award winning star of Hamilton. 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, my guitar and a piano, these are songs of protest and joy and anger and love.
