On Monday 26 June Chickenshed will be staging a powerful and inspirational celebration of children's hopes for the future in a truly monumental performance at the iconic Royal Albert Hall with over 600 children taking part.
Inspired by Amnesty International UK's illustrated children's book of the same name, Dreams of Freedom will be the culmination of a two year project working with children across London, gathering their thoughts, opinions, ideas and dreams to create a musical, theatrical and visual spectacular that demands human rights for everyone.
Bringing together hundreds of children from many different state, independent and SEN schools, as well as Chickenshed's Children Theatre members, and backed by the 100-strong Triborough Music Hub's Young Singers Choir, the performance will offer a kaleidoscope of music, movement and song giving voice to children's hopes for a better world.
Previous Children's Laureate Chris Riddell, who provided many of the illustrations for the Dreams of Freedom book, will be joining 9 year old Jude Holland on stage to draw an illustrated commentary of the production.
These remarkable and poignant images will be projected on screens across The Royal Albert Hall throughout the performance.
Here they are talking about the project ...
With original music and lyrics, Dreams of Freedom promises to be a life-affirming glimpse of a world that could be, if we are ready to listen and dare to dream!
