Letters for Peace by Graeme Stephen

Beursschouwburg

Inspired by the stories and letters of conscientious objectors who refused to fight during the First World War, award winning composer and guitarist Graeme Stephen’s powerful performance weaves together music, spoken word and image to engage with the public perception of war, highlighting the sacrifices objectors made in the name of peace.

With the acclaimed Shetland-born Violinist Chris Stout, Patsy Reid on Viola, Alice Allen on Cello, Lizabett Russo on Vocals and the Voice of Nitai Levy.

“Stephen’s daring writing and willingness to complement conventional lyricism with sonic experiment makes for a powerful experience” The Scotsman
