Commissions & Outreach: The Unprecedented Case

In July 2017, we will be collaborating with The National Trust and The Houses of Parliament to deliver ‘The Unprecedented Case’, a commission for an innovative new performance-piece for mixed ensemble, electronics, live-typed text projections and puppetry.

This distinctive new musical storytelling will involve 30 SEND and Pupil Premium Year Six pupils, working together with a group of musicians and puppeteers. The piece will tell stories from the history of Hackney museum Sutton House in a highly engaging and visually stimulating way, and will be performed by the full ensemble including participating children on July 18th.

Cinema Everywhere: Zop’s Travelling Cinematograph

In November 2016, we built a 1920s style travelling cinema, which allows us to take 35mm silent film around the country to rural areas or areas of low cultural engagement. This also provides opportunities for young and emerging musicians, to perform improvised soundtracks around the country.

Zop’s Travelling Cinematograph is also available for hire commercially.
