Unique performance inspired by Milton Keynes war stories
|Writers and performers involved with the project commemorating the First World War.|
The diaries, letters and images of Milton Keynes residents during the First World War have been transformed into an evening of performance at MK Gallery, taking place on May 29th.
Living Archive has been working with Steven McDaniel and Michèle Welborn of Planet Zyz, as well as other young talented songwriters, musicians and film makers, to commission new works inspired by the war stories.
This six month project builds on the previous work of the Living Archive Band, and new music, songs and films will be screened and performed live on Friday May 29th, at 7pm in the gallery's event space.The one-off performance, The Great War Remembered, will provide a space for people to celebrate and reflect on the people, the lives and the poignant and powerful stories that are still relevant today.Steven McDaniel says: "It is wonderful to work with such a passionate group of young people and great that Living Archive has given them this opportunity to work together and perform live."
This project is just one of a series funded through Great War MK by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
