Inspired by Maurice Ravel's extraordinary violin piece, Tzigane, Solo is a poetic, poignant 10-minute experience for two people at a time. You play the role of a violinist and a composer as you enact a true story of how this piece of music came to be, from a blank score to the curtain call.
You meet the violinist in a Soho restaurant and share cocktails and awkward silences. You visit the composer in his garden in Paris struggling to compose, surrounded by fallen leaves. You stand on stage in 1924 after the premiere, flowers at your feet.
This is an immersive story about the power of music told using old and new technology. You follow the story using headphones and are guided around St Wilfirds Church Hall by Michael Pinchbeck and Ollie Smith.
