10.30am – 12.30pm workshop
An improvisation- based workshop that takes participants to different locations in Norwich to explore the acoustics, the architecture, the landscape of the city. Singing by a park bench, singing by the river, singing under an archway, singing in the cobbled streets, singing on a zebra crossing. The different locations will all be within walking distance of each other in the city centre.
