Hildegard Transfigured: a medieval trance for the 21st Century

1 hour programme Hildegard Transfigured takes a unique, in-depth exploration into the world of Hildegard and how her legacy continues to inspire. This collaborative show presented by female vocal trio Voice and psychedelic visual-artist Innerstrings uses live visuals, text and music to celebrate 12thC Hildegard of Bingen’s work as a composer, visionary, and woman. The audience will hear her original music and contemporary pieces inspired by her work by established and emerging British composers while being surrounded by an all-encompassing light show recreating Hildegard’s visions ‘the living light’ for a 21st Century audience. Hildegard’s melismatic music forms the bulk of this programme and has also influenced all the new works performed. Composers include Laura Moody, who collaborated in devising the show, Stevie Wishart, Marcus Davidson, Emily Levy, Tim Young and Laura Moody.
