Poised in the delicate space between concert and theatre, Chamber Made’s Permission to Speak explores the most universal of relationships – that of parent and child – as it exists and evolves through a lifetime.
This first-time collaboration between director Tamara Saulwick and composer Kate Neal pairs contemporary performance with musical composition to construct a revealing portrait of the experience of family.
Musings, diatribes, recollections and hindsight find voice as four performer/vocalists are fused in choral counterpoint with an assembly of pre-recorded voices. Built from interviews with people of all ages, Permission to Speak interweaves the complexities, parallels and paradoxes of this dynamic relationship.
