Fire in my mouth

Details

UK PREMIERE

The UK premiere of a multimedia impassioned elegy for the victims of New York’s 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire.

Trailblazing (New York Times) conductor Marin Alsop, the Philharmonia Orchestra and the female voices of the National Youth Choir of Scotland come together for the first UK performance of Julia Wolfe’s Fire in my mouth.

Fire in my mouth commemorates the most fatal industrial disaster in New York’s history. Against the backdrop of the worker’s protest movement, the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire stole the lives of 146 garment workers, who were mostly women of immigrant backgrounds. Here, every victim is represented by a choir member. Yiddish and Italian folk songs, along with the clatter of the factory and the terror of the inferno, create a haunting soundscape.

This multimedia performance includes cutting-edge scenic, lighting and video designs by Tony Award-winner Jeff Sugg.
