Century Song

A visually breathtaking musical voyage celebrating the strength and resilience of Black women throughout the 20th Century.

Co-created by Neema Bickersteth, Kate Alton & Ross Manson
Starring internationally acclaimed soprano Neema Bickersteth
Choreographed by Kate Alton
Directed by Ross Manson

The Canadian original that rocked the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, Century Song is a riveting hybrid of theatre, music, dance, and visual art featuring the powerful, Dora Award-winning soprano, Neema Bickersteth. Inspired in part by Virginia Woolf’s Orlando and Alice Walker’s In Search of Our Mother’s Gardens, Bickersteth inhabits a century of women whose identities are contained within her own. It is an exquisite, aural experience, featuring music by some of the most adventurous composers of the past 100 years against a visual tapestry of inventive and influential art. Presented by Volcano Theatre and Moveable Beast Collective, Century Song is a co-creation by Neema Bickersteth, Kate Alton and Ross Manson, backed by an international team of artists, musicians and designers.

“Without words – we’re forced to exist in all the other ways we communicate.”
– Neema Bickersteth, Soprano
