Evening Standard – 18 January 2022
The best dance, opera and classical music to book in London in 2022. From a celebration of the power of the voice to an adaptation of a dystopian novel, the worlds of dance, opera and classical music are looking firmly forward.
Elaine Mitchener can loosely be described as an experimental vocalist and movement artist, but essentially she’s uncategorisable. Gasps, stutters, yelps are all part of an astonishing oral palette deployed to express the plight of the oppressed and enslaved. In celebration of International Women’s Day, she presents WOMENS WORK, the title taken from the pioneering Fluxus magazine of the 1970s. The programme features contemporary works by women and female-identifying composers.
