‘What she does should be happening every week of the year’ The Guardian
Inside-Out Climate Music
Acclaimed pianist and composer Sarah Nicolls‘ new Inside-Out Piano project 12 Years was inspired by the 2018 IPCC Special Report saying 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.
Sarah and Anna Hughes from Flight Free UK invite audiences to share thoughts about 12 Years and climate change after the show, specifically to talk about what we can all do.
