Re:voice show nominated for Cornwall Heritage Awards

The Re:voice show directed by Agnieszka Blonska – performed at Tate St Ives as part of the Re:voice project – has been shortlisted for Collaboration in the Cornwall Museums Partnership (CMP) Cornwall Heritage Awards 2024.

The collaboration led by Falmouth University was with Tate St Ives, imPOSSIBLE Producing Ltd, and the Tuesday Night Fun Club, a community choir from Penzance.

The show was co-created with the choir, building on workshops around the project’s research questions to explore living heritage in relation to themes of home, belonging, and community.

The performance took place at Tate St Ives in April this year on the final weekend of its Barbara Hepworth exhibition and was shown alongside other outputs from the project including A Serpent’s Dance, a sound piece by Lucy Frears; and Pass It On, a film by Florence Browne about Cornish, Frisian, and Livonian intangible heritage.

The CMP Cornwall Heritage Award winners will be announced in February 2024.
