Event details

An Inside-Out piano recital about climate change

Acclaimed pianist and composer Sarah Nicolls' new Inside-Out piano project '12 Years' was inspired by the 2018 IPCC Special Report that said we had just 12 years to radically change our behaviour to save the planet.

With her striking vertical grand piano, Nicolls combines original music and recorded speech in a compelling performance.

Piano melodies and textures interweave with phone calls between three fictional characters challenging each other to either worry less or do more. We hear from environmental experts, survivors escaping from a wildfire and a glacier melting, eloquent speeches from Greta Thunberg and finally the sound of hope emerging.

"What she does should be happening every week of the year" - The Guardian

Produced by Sound UK. Funded by Arts Council England.

There will be a post-show discussion with Rupert Read.

Starts: 7.30pm
Tickets: £12, Under 25's £5, Festival Friends £2 off
Venue: The Athenaeum, Bury St Edmunds
