Heartsong Choir has been meeting to sing together every Tuesday for over 12 years. Outdoors takes place on the evening of choir rehearsal once a week for a year. Armed with ipods and headsets, audience members trace the journeys of choir members to their rehearsal through the town. Outdoors conducts its audience in a joyful fugue of interweaving stories and song; a series of virtual solos, joining up into a choral finale.
National Theatre Wales is joining forces with Berlin’s pioneering reality theatre-makers Rimini Protokoll to create their first UK commission – in Aberystwyth.
