LULLABY MOVEMENT: a song cycle

Sophia Brous, David Coulter and Leo Abrahams (Aus/UK)

LULLABY MOVEMENTĀ is a song cycle performance work exploring lullaby ritual from around the world. Performed in more then 16 languages, the piece was created by Australian vocalist and composer Sophia Brous with British musicians Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Regina Speector) and David Coulter (Kronos Quartet, Laurie Anderson), with choreography and additional direction by Faye Driscoll.

Originally Commissioned by Urbantheatre Projects for the Sydney Festival, since 2014 Brous has researched lullaby repertoire from across the world, visiting community centres and refugee camps throughout Europe with activist and BBC documentarian Katie Barlow. The song cycle was developed in a residency at Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center and will be released as a full album and toured internationally through 2017/2018.
