In Our Bones

"We wander the sunset plains, like nomads awaiting the rains".

Four musicians and a painter imagine an astonishing and beautiful vision of hope in ecological crisis.

Processed through formulae and machine, set free in imagination and music, Diniwe and the Hadedas explode a single poem by Don Paterson in a song-cycle that speaks of migration, landscape, roots, heritage and home. A multimedia collaboration collaging voices, song, poetry and paint, calling for action on the most pressing issue in the last ten million years. Profound, ridiculous and beautiful.

"Tell us who we once were, we are not afraid of ourselves."

About Diniwe and the Hadedas

Diniwe and the Hadedas are a multimedia collective working in Visual Art, Music, Text, Theatre and the in-betweens. Based in the South West, their previous work has toured to festivals in the UK and internationally. In Our Bones was made and performed at The Drum, Theatre Royal Plymouth and originally commissioned by the University of Cambridge.

In Our Bones is performed and written by sound, radio and podcast editor, sound artist, writer and musician Femi Oriogun-Williams, and artist, director, potter, chef, performer and musician Freddie Crossley. For these three unique performances, Femi and Freddie collaborate with multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer Finn Boxer, cellist, composer and radio host Will Langstone aka Armed With Bow, and artist, Alice Hartley.

Alice Hartley will paint a huge 4x3m backlit painting live throughout the performance. Alice was selected and exhibited in New Contemporaries 2014, and has exhibited across the country, throughout Europe and North America.

This show will be operated by Belgian sound and lighting designer Jeroen Wuyts. Jeroen usually works for award winning, internationally touring companies Ontroerend Goed and SkaGen.
