Three major figures in British musical life – between them cellist, 2 singers, director, 2 comediennes, a conductor and 3 composers – present short new works on the theme of protest and politics. A chance to hear some of our most radical and individual voices unleashed!

Zoë conducts the premiere of her anarchic new music theatre piece #skin , a setting of texts by Twitter phenomenon @KimKierkegaardashian, a mash-up of the bleak existential philosophy of Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard with Instagram airbrush, Kim Kardashian.
