“It’s not light yet, but it’s getting there.”

The Song Project performed by award-winning Dutch singer-songwriter Wende will return for a run in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs in May 2020 following four nights in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs in June 2019.

In January, Dutch singer-songwriter Wende and Royal Court Artistic Associate Chloe Lamford invited five Royal Court writers to spend a day together talking.

Wende and Isobel Waller-Bridge locked themselves away with a piano and a laptop turning the lyrics into songs.

Chloe and Imogen Knight began to visualise what the performance might be.

What they presented to a small room at the end of just one week was phenomenal. This project is just at the beginning. Join us as it develops.

Tickets for the four shows in the intimate Jerwood Theatre Upstairs are on sale. Click here to book.
Tickets for the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs performances in May 2020 will go on sale in October 2019.

“Wende has something PJ Harvey-esque in her defiant vulnerability and the raw edge of her vocals.” Financial Times

“Her vulnerability blends perfectly with music and audio visual technicality of world class. There is no escaping Wende.” De Volkskrant
