From acclaimed composer Iain Chambers comes a new audio composition celebrating women, in and around the City, in their own words. Exploring women’s freedom of thought and religion, their right to work, to be independent financially and socially, and to vote and participate in public life, the piece is set to the words of women from history – including Emmeline Pankhurst defending herself at the Old Bailey and notorious pickpocket Mol Cutpurse on getting into fights and wearing men's clothes. An all-women cast of soloists and a choir – along with live musicians and a creative recorded soundscape – bring contemporary resonance to powerful voices from our past.
