Helen’s new solo show investigates the need to improvise and be out of one’s comfort zone in order to create and lead. It begins with songs and stories around risk and ends with live over dubbed sung improvisations based on fragments of love poems written by the Greek poet Sappho.
Mouthful create our repertoire together through playing out loud with songs, with sounds, with feelings, with ideas and with our voices. We compose, arrange and mess up all kinds of musical material. We invite you to immerse yourself in our sound world, which is by turns tender, groovy, mysterious, harmonious, discordant and celebratory….in this set you will hear vocal music influenced by Finnish and Georgian traditional song, by funk and beatbox, by jazz, pop and contemporary music; all refracted through the prism of The Mouthful Way.
