Working with musician, Sarah Moody

We have been working with Sarah Moody, the musician. Sarah plays cello, violin and accordian, all instruments that we thought were good for the music in The Tempest. She will join us and play live at all the venues we visit with the play. We think that she has added something very important to our telling of the story of The Tempest. We would like to upload some extracts from Sarah’s music for our play onto our website soon. The music has helped us get over some of the big emotions and feelings in our telling of The Tempest.

We used a recording of Sarah’s music for the extract that we showed at the Tobacco Factory for Prototype. It was very powerful and helped us to show the grief and loneliness that Caliban may feel when he loses his mother, Sycorax.
